How the Loan Process Works

There is no doubt that getting a mortgage is a complex process. You wouldn't be here on our website if you could complete a one-page loan application and get an excellent loan funded the same day. We do the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.

There are four primary steps involved in obtaining a mortgage loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

A couple of factors determine this amount. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: complete a pre-qualification

This is where Firelight Mortgage Consultants can start saving you money. You will give us details on your employment, assets, and residence history. You'll supply your employment, asset, and residence history information. We run your credit score and report. After we have gone over this info we give you a pre-qualification letter. Your agent will likely use your pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're shopping for your new home with your REALTOR™, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

Once you've made the offer and it's been accepted, it's time to apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can apply online, right here on our website. After the seller has accepted your offer and you have applied for your loan, we'll order the professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: your loan is funded

The agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing. We'll coordinate with this company to ensure all the papers your lender will need are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign everything at this company's officeWe do all the work to coordinate with this company to set your closing date. Because you won't need to coordinate this process, you get to think about moving logistics, paint colors, new carpet, and all the details of getting a new house.

You've answered a few questions, provided detailed information, applied , and Before you know it, you're moving in! Firelight Mortgage Consultants is in the business of mortgage loans; you're not — so take care of the details. Doesn't that make sense?
