The Loan Process
Don’t let the loan process deter you from your dreams of homeownership. When broken down, the loan process is actually not that intimidating. Pair your knowledge with an experienced and professional Mortgage Consultant and your homebuying journey will go much more smoothly. These 7 steps make up the mortgage loan process:
Apply: Pertinent information is gathered and escrow is opened with the Title Company.
Verify: All information is verified for accuracy.
Submit: Your Mortgage Consultant processes documentation for the loan and submits it to an Underwriter for review and decision.
Approve: Upon approval of the loan, all parties will be notified and any outstanding conditions will be clarified and received before the final loan documents can be drawn.
Draw and Sign: Loan documents, including note and deed of trust, are prepared and sent to the Title Company. The Escrow Officer informs borrower(s) of how much money is needed to close the loan and final signatures are then required.
Fund: After signatures, the documents are returned to the lender for review. Upon confirmation that all necessary requirements are met and the loan is in order, your loan will be funded.
Record: Once the loan is funded, the Title Company records the security documents with the county and it becomes a public record. Escrow is closed, the final Title Policy is issued, and the buyer receives the keys. Congratulations on your new home!
