How the Mortgage Loan Process Works

There can be little doubt ; getting a mortgage loan is a complicated process. You wouldn't be here on our website if you could fill out a simple loan app and receive the best loan funded the same day. But Saab Mortgage does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

Getting a loan involves four major steps.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

This is a function of a couple things. 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? 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: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will give us details about your current job, assets, and your residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We get your permission to pull your credit score and report. After we've finished reviewing the provided information, we'll provide a pre-qualificaiton letter. Handle it with care — it is a great tool for buying your new home! With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're picking out the home that's right for you, we're busy researching the loan that's right for your unique situation.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made the offer and the sellers have accepted, you should apply for the loan. It couldn't be easier, and you can apply online, right here on our website. 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: your loan is funded

Your REALTOR® and the seller's will coordinate to decide on a title company to take care of the funding of your loan. We'll work with this company to ensure all the papers your lender will need are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign everything at their officeWe do all the work to work with with this company on your date of closing. Because you will not have to worry about these details, you can concentrate on the move, painting, carpet, and the fun parts of moving into your new home.

You've answered some few questions, provided lots of information, applied , and the next thing you know, you're deciding when to move in! We take care of the mortgage legwork so you can spend your time finding the new home that's right for you.
