Congratulations on Your Preapproval!

Now What? Read on for information regarding the next steps:

1. Shopping For a Home:

  • Stay in touch with your loan officer and keep us updated on your house hunting
  • Remember to check your emails and try to respond promptly with any requests for additional information (keep an eye on your spam/junk folders)
  • Utilize your preapproval letter. There is a generic one you can start using in this folder. We can easily adjust this letter with any specifics needed, such as an address
  • Make an offer! Let us know if it is accepted or not
  • Call or email your loan officer to schedule a mortgage meeting if the offer is accepted

Time Frame: as long as it takes to find your dream home

You will need the following:

  • Realtor contact information
  • Copy of the earnest money check
  • Copy of updated pay stubs and bank statements
  • Other documents requested by your loan officer

Time Frame: in-person meeting or conference call (1-1.5 hrs)

  • Please note that it is not unusual for us to need additional documents during this time
  • Watch your email and/or phone for messages and updates

During this time frame:

  • We will arrange for an appraisal to be completed on the property
