Home Loan Application Review

After you have submitted your home loan application, a loan officer will review the information you have provided. The loan officer will run a credit report and may ask for some documentation to support your claims. These documents may include W-2, Tax Returns, Bank Statements, and Drivers License or Social Security copy.

Pre-Approval Letter

At this point, your lender will provide you with a pre-approval letter that states your approved borrowing amount and the terms of your loan.

Package of Disclosures

A package of disclosures will be prepared and sent to you to review and sign. You will then return them to the lender promptly in order to keep the process moving.

Processing and Underwriting

At this point, a mortgage professional will review the application for accuracy. You may receive a call at this time for more information; this will help speed the process along. After processing, the file is now ready to go to an underwriter for review. The underwriter will review the file and will make a decision as to whether the loan will be approved or denied.

Settlement Statement

Your lender will put in a submittal for the Settlement Statement to be generated. Once the Settlement Statement is received, your lender will review the statement and discuss the funds you will need to bring to closing.

Your Home Closing

Your home closing day may be one of the most exciting days of your life! You will meet with a closing attorney to sign your closing documents and receive the keys to your new home!
