Getting prequalified or pre-approved, the first steps to purchasing your home...

If you haven’t experienced it before, the home loan process can feel overwhelming, but I will help you stay informed throughout the process, from pre-approval to closing. The first thing to do is consult with a mortgage specialist (or two). If you don’t already have someone in mind, I partner with some of the best lenders in the industry, and I’d be happy to introduce you, so you’ll be taken care of.

Mortgage

Application & Processing


When you find property you’re ready to buy, your lender will help you complete a full mortgage loan application, and talk you through the various fees and down payment options. The application is submitted to processing, where the documents are reviewed and appraisals and title examination are ordered. Then the loan is sent to an underwriter, who reviews and approves the entire loan if it meets compliance. Get Connected with Our Lender Today!

Please let them know you were referred by me. It is always advisable to speak with multiple mortgage brokers and banks before you make your decision.

Finalize the Deal


Don’t be surprised if you’re asked for additional documentation or clarification throughout the process. Once your loan is approved, don’t forget to set up homeowners insurance. Your documents will be sent to the title company, where you’ll sign for the new home and pay any remaining costs. Then the loan is recorded and you get the keys.

Congratulations, happy homeowner!

Mortgage Calculator 

Know your mortgage payment


Know Your Mortgage Payment Based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate, this calculator can help estimate what you'll need to pay out monthly for your new home. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans with less than a 20% down payment, as well as town property taxes and its effect on the total monthly mortgage payment. In order to determine the amount of home you can afford a lender will use your debt-to-income ratio to determine the percentage of your pre-tax income you spend on debt. Your debt ratio will include: monthly housing costs, car payments, credit cards, student loans, and any other installment debt. If you take on more debt before buying a home it will have an impact on the amount of the loan that the lender will finance.
