MORTGAGE PROCESS

We have broken the Loan Process into 4 easy to understand steps.

 
Pre-approval:  Apply Online, in person, or by phone. We will Pre Approve you within 15 minutes. If needed, we will present you with a letter of pre-approval that you can give to your real estate agent or to the sellers.

Loan Processing:  A Title Commitment / Appraisal & Survey may  be required. Once we have received the necessary documentation (paystubs, bank statements, rental history, etc....) from you, we will check to ensure everything is in order for expedient final loan approval.  We have many reduced documentation loans.

Final Approval:  The loan is then reviewed by an Underwriter for final Approval and closing instructions are sent to the title company.

Close/Funding:  This is where you will meet at the Title company to sign final documents. After closing, it takes 1-4 hours to fund purchases and 1-3 days for refinances.

What is a mortgage?
A mortgage is a loan secured by real property (permanently affixed to the ground house). There are 3 main types of mortgages: Conventional, FHA, & VA.

Conventional Loans
This type of mortgage is insured by private corporations. If you conform to the private insurer's lending guidelines, you will be eligible for the best market interest rates, and the best mortgage rates in Virginia.  You can also get a conventional mortgage without insurance. There are  many conventional programs for W2 employees, self-employed, stated income and jumbo borrowers.  This is the most flexible type of mortgage.

FHA Loans
These are loans funded by the government's Fair Housing Administration department.

VA Loans
A mortgage that is insured by the Veteran's Administration. If you are a veteran or properly related to one, you can apply for this type of mortgage. These mortgages allow you to finance 100% of the purchase price of a home with less income and/or less-than-perfect credit.
