The Loan Process: an Overview

There's quite a lot to do in oder to get a mortgage. You would not be looking up loan information if it were possible to get a loan in a single day by filling out a simple application. But Yamini Patel does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

Getting a mortgage loan involves four major milestones.

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: complete a pre-qualification

This is where the rubber meets the road and you save the most money. You will give us information on your current job, assets, and your residence history. You'll give us information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will pull get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission, of course). After we have reviewed all this info we will give you a pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it is a great tool when you make your offer! With this letter, your REALTOR® will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're shopping for your new home, we are researching the loan that best fits your needs.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made an offer and the sellers have accepted, you should complete the loan application. Applying for your loan could not get much easier; you can apply right here on our site. After the seller has accepted your offer and you have applied for your loan, we'll order the professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: funding

Your REALTOR® and the seller's will coordinate to decide on a title company to take care of the funding of your loan once it's approved. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure the papers your lender requires are avaiailable, and you will probably}likely sign all these papers at this company's officeWe do all the work to work with with the title company to set your date of closing. Because you will not need to coordinate this process, you can concentrate on moving, painting, new carpet, and all the details of moving into your new house.

You've answered some few questions, provided lots of information, applied online, and before you know it, you're deciding when to move in! Yamini Patel is in the business of mortgage loans; you're not — so we take care of the details. Makes sense, doesn't it??
