Complete our online application or over the phone.
Your mortgage consultant will review with you and finalize your application.
Your application will be submitted to loan processing. At this time, your loan processor will send you a “needs list” which will contain some documents for you to sign and a list of items we'll need in order to verify the information you provided during the online application and for a specific loan amount.
We’ll order an appraisal from a licensed appraiser in your area. The type of appraisal varies by loan type.
Your file will be reviewed by our underwriting department for loan eligibility.
Once your loan has been underwritten, your loan processor will contact you with the loan decision and notify you of any additional documentation requirements.
Finally, we will contact you to coordinate your closing date. If you are purchasing a home, we will also schedule the closing with the real estate broker and the seller.
The closing will take place at your home, a location that you choose, or the office of a title company or attorney in your area who will act as our agent, depending on the state in which the subject property is located. If you are purchasing a new home, the seller may also be at the closing to transfer ownership to you, but in some states, these two events actually happen separately.

During the closing, you will be reviewing and signing several loan papers. The closing agent or attorney conducting the closing should be able to answer any questions you have or you can feel free to contact your Mortgage Consultant at 1.888.546.2634 if you prefer.
