Apply for your loan
It’s a lot easier than you think. Our online loan application is a fast and easy way to get your mortgage loan process started.
Provide supporting documents
We provide secure online and offline options to send required documents to our underwriters. We know this is the boring part, but our Mortgage Team will make it as easy as possible.
Get your pre-approval
This step lets you know what your approvable purchase and finance amount is, plus the rate and potential monthly payment for that amount. Let the house hunt begin.
Lock in your rate and get final approval
If you are refinancing, this step can take place right after pre-approval. For a home purchase, the loan will move toward closing once you have had an offer accepted and the property details are submitted to our team.
Review final loan documents
Once we have the required property information in hand and other document requirements have been met, we can generate the final loan documents for review before setting a closing date.
Close on your new home
Now for the fun part. Once a closing date is set, loan documents will be delivered to the closing agent for signing and financial transactions will be coordinated to complete the process. And just like that — you’re home.
Simply put – no down payment. Selecting a VA loan allows qualified buyers the ability to purchase a home without making a down payment.
Your VA Loan amount is based on the applicant’s credit score and ability to repay the loan. Otherwise, there is no maximum loan amount. It is however limited by the purchase price or reasonable home value.
Perhaps the biggest advantages to a VA Loan, is you don’t need a down payment.
The VA requires that you must be able to show two years of consistent income, preferably documented through W-2s. If there are any gaps in employment in this two-year period, they must be substantiated. If there’s a break due to school or training for work, it can be counted toward the two-year requirement.
