The first step in buying a home is pre-qualification. This is not a full mortgage approval, but a basic estimate of what you can afford in a home loan. This is sometimes confused with pre-approval, which is a more comprehensive and committed indication of the total mortgage amount available to you. Pre-qualifying helps you identify and resolve any issues you may encounter in your application. To simplify your loan process and get pre-qualified click here.
A mortgage is the loan a potential Home Buyer needs in order to make up the difference between the down payment and the purchase price of the home. There are a variety of mortgage programs available, with adjustable time periods and financing options. It usually takes about 30 days to process a loan application. The actual time depends on how promptly the lender can get an appraisal of the property, a credit report, and verification of employment and bank accounts. Upon meeting with a lender you’ll need to provide verification of income, assets, and long-term debt.
