The Loan Process: an Overview
There's little doubt that getting a mortgage is a complex process. You wouldn't be visiting our site if it were possible to complete a simple application and receive a great loan check cut the same day. We do 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 important steps involved in obtaining a loan.
Step one: determine how much you can borrow
A couple of factors determine this amount. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. 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: pre-qualify for your loan
This is where the rubber meets the road and Bright Vision Mortgage can really save you money. You will supply information on your current job, your assets, and residence history. You'll give us your employment, asset, and residence history information. We pull your credit score and report. After we've reviewed this information, we'll provide you with a pre-qualificaiton letter. Be careful with this letter — it is a great tool when you make your offer! Your real estate agent will use your pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're deciding on your new home, we are looking for the loan that best fits your needs.
Step three: apply now! We make it easy
Once you have made an offer and the sellers have accepted, it's time to apply for the loan. Applying for your loan couldn't get much easier; you can apply from the comfort of your home right here on our site. When the time is right, we will order the appraisal of your new home.
Step four: funding
The agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing. We'll work with this company to make sure all the papers your lender requires are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe do all the work to work with with this company to set your date of closing. Because you don't need to worry with this coordination, you can think about moving logistics, if you're going to repaint, carpet, and all the details of moving into a new house.
You've answered a few questions, provided detailed information, applied , and before you know it, you're deciding when to move in! Bright Vision Mortgage is in the business of loans; you're not — so we take care of the details. Doesn't that sound nice?
