How the Loan Process Works

There is little doubt ; getting a mortgage is a complicated process. You would not be researching mortgage loans if you could get a mortgage loan in one day by filling out a simple application. We do most of the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.

There are four primary steps involved in getting a mortgage loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

A couple of factors determine this amount. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This step is where James M. Dix will start to save you money. You will provide information on your employment, your assets, and your residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission, of course). After we have reviewed this information we will give you a pre-qualification letter. With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. While you're shopping for your new home with your agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

Once you have made the offer and the sellers have accepted, you should complete the loan application. Applying for a loan could not get much easier; you can apply any time right here on our site. At the end of this step, we'll order an appraisal of your new home.

Step four: your loan is funded

The real estate agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing of the sale. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure the papers your lender will need are in order, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at this company's officeWe coordinate with the title company on your date to close. Because you don't have to worry with this coordination, you can think about moving, paint colors, carpet, and the fun parts of getting your new home.

You've answered some few questions, provided detailed information, applied online, and the next thing you know, you're moving in! We take care of the mortgage legwork so you can spend your time finding your new home.
