How the Loan Process Works

There's a lot involved when you get a mortgage loan. You would not be researching mortgage loans if it were possible to get a loan in a single day with a simple application. But Firelight Mortgage Consultants does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

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

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

This is a function of a couple things. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will provide information on your employment, your assets, and residence history. You'll provide your employment, asset, and residence history information. We get your permission to pull your credit score and report. We'll review this info and will provide a pre-qualification letter. With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're shopping for a new home with your real estate agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

After you've signed the offer and the sellers accept it, you should apply for the loan. Applying for a loan couldn't get much easier; you can apply online right here on our site. Finally, we will order the appraisal of your new home.
