Understanding the Mortgage Loan Process

At Advisors Mortgage Group, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to understand the loan process. We are here to help and guide you through every step of the way. Today, we are going to review the nine steps during the course of the loan so you understand how it works, and you will always know exactly where you are in the process.

Step 1: Pre-Approval Consultation

The first step is to speak with a loan officer for a pre-approval consultation to assess your credit and figure out how much of a mortgage you can qualify for. This is a great time to check with your loan officer and evaluate what purchase price and monthly payment you are comfortable paying. Don’t forget to take into account your other monthly expenses such as food, utilities, and entertainment. After your loan officer reviews your application and credit, he or she will send you a pre-approval letter. Now you’re off to the fun part, house hunting! What is a Pre-Qualification?

Step 2: Application/Gather Documents

After finding your dream home and having your offer accepted, now it’s time to complete the application process. Here is where your loan officer will ask for your income and asset documentation (W-2s, pay stubs, bank statements, etc.). The loan can only move forward once we have all the documents needed. Next, you sign your initial disclosure package and head to processing!

Step 3: Processing

You will be assigned a processor who will work with you throughout the loan process and prepare your file for underwriting. A processor will review your loan application to confirm and verify all of the information you've provided is correct. He or she may also request extra documentation from you, if needed, in order to get your file submitted to underwriting. The processor keeps everything together, and communication with your processor is critical for a smooth experience.

Step 4: Appraisal

During the processing phase, your appraisal is ordered. An independent, licensed appraiser will come out and inspect the home. The value of the home will be calculated by examining the current local housing market and the comparable properties that have recently sold. It will also factor in the features of the home, square footage, and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Once the appraiser uploads his or her report, you will receive a copy automatically via email.

Step 5: Underwriting

After processing comes one of the biggest steps in the life of your loan, underwriting! The underwriter will review your loan application and confirm it meets all the current guidelines based on the loan program you’ve applied for. They will review your credit report, all of your documentation, and evaluate your debt-to-income ratio. If the underwriter has determined that your file meets all of the necessary requirements, they will approve your loan and issue what’s called a conditional mortgage loan approval, sometimes referred to as a “commitment”.

Step 6: Conditional Mortgage Loan Approval

Congratulations, your loan has been approved! Typically, when an underwriter approves a loan, it will be provisional pending a few outstanding items, called conditions. Conditions could be something like an updated pay stub or bank statements, or needing your employer to answer an extra question on your verification of employment. Once we have this final documentation, the underwriter will review to confirm the conditions have been met, and they will clear the file for closing! Now you can take a deep breath…the hard part is over! Off to closing!

Step 7: Clear to Close

Clear to close are the best three words to hear during this process! After the underwriter issues your clear to close, the closing department will send you an initial closing disclosure (CD) at least three days prior to your closing date. It is important that this is reviewed and signed as soon as possible. Any delays to signing the initial CD could delay your closing. The initial CD is an updated breakdown of all fees included in your transaction. Once your CD is signed, the closing department will work with your attorney or title company to finalize your closing date and time. Now you’re ready for the fun part – closing on your home! Don’t forget your photo ID! You’re almost at the finish line!

Step 8: Closing/Funding

Closing day is the best day! You will go to your attorney or title company’s office, sign the documents, and leave with keys in your hand! Congratulations! You are now a homeowner!

Step 9: Loan Payments & Servicing

Now that you have closed on your home, your monthly payments will start kicking in. Typically, your first payment is due on the first day of the second month after closing, but be sure to consult your closing documents to confirm. From this point forward, you will make your monthly payments to your loan servicer, but your loan officer is always available to help with any questions that you have.
