The Four Steps of the Mortgage Loan Process:The Loan Process: Four Steps

There's little doubt ; getting a mortgage is a complex process. You wouldn't be researching mortgage loans if it were possible to get a mortgage loan in a single 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 main steps involved in obtaining a loan.

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

A couple of factors determine this amount. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: complete a pre-qualification

This is where the process really begins and Contemporary Mortgage Services, Inc can really save you money. You will provide info on your employment, assets, and residence history. You'll give us your employment, asset, and residence history information. We get your permission to run your credit score and report. After we have reviewed all this info we will give you a pre-qualification letter. Your real estate agent will use the pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're deciding on the home that's right for you, we're busy researching the loan that's just right for you.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

After you've made the offer and the sellers accept it, it's time to apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can apply online, 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

Your REALTOR® and the seller's will work together to designate an escrow/title company to handle the funding of your loan. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all the papers your lender will require are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign everything at this company's officeWe do all the work to work with with this company to set your closing date.
