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

There's no question ; getting a mortgage loan is a complicated process. You would not be researching mortgage loans if you could get a mortgage loan in one 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 mortgage loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? 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. 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 Riverside Funding Corp. can really save you money. You will give us info on your current job, assets, and residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We get your permission to run your credit score and report. After we've finished reviewing this information, we'll provide you with a pre-qualificaiton letter. Your agent will likely use the 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 shopping for your new home with your agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made an offer and the sellers accept it, it's time to apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can do it online, right here on our website. At the end of this step, we will order an appraisal of your new home.

Step four: your loan is funded

The agents will find an escrow/title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing of the sale. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all the papers your lender requires are in order, and you will probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe coordinate with this company on your closing date. Because you won't need to worry about these details, you get to concentrate on the move, if you're going to repaint, new carpet, and the details involved in moving into a new house.
