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 primary steps involved in getting a loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. 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? 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. 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 step is where Riverside Funding Corp. can begin to save you money. You will give us details on your current job, your assets, and residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We get your permission to pull your credit score and report. When we review all this information we will provide a pre-qualification letter. Handle it with care — it is a useful tool for buying your new home!

While you're picking out the home that's right for you, we are looking for the best loan program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made the offer and the sellers accept it, it's time to apply for the loan. Applying for a loan couldn't get much easier; you can apply from the comfort of your home right here on our site. At the end of this step, we will order the appraisal of your new home.
