How We Process Your Loan Application

  • 1


    You will submit a completed application in person or via our on-line application and provide all applicable information identified in the Information & Document Checklist.

  • 2


    You will sign the necessary authorizations for verifications and be presented with the appropriate lending disclosures.

  • 3


    Your file will be prepared for underwriting and final approval. We will seek written verifications concerning your employment and income, assets and debt. Additionally, we will order a credit report and appraisal.

  • 4


    All information from your application and supporting documentation is exported to either Desktop Underwriter® (for conventional loans) or Loan Prospector® (for Freddie Mac loans) for electronic underwriting. These systems assess the risk associated with the loan and provide recommendations for approval. Government loans, such as FHA, VA, and USDA loans, are reviewed by other means. If additional information is required, your processor will secure and provide it for final loan approval.

  • 5


    The approved file is sent to closing at a date and time convenient for all parties. You will be advised as to the dollar amount required at closing. You will bring a certified check for closing costs, plus any final documents required to complete the file. In the closing, you will sign the appropriate documents. You will receive copies of all documents which are signed at closing.
