What should I avoid during the home buying process?

It’s important to avoid applying for any new credit during the mortgage process. We recommend keeping your credit card balances below 30% of your limit. We strongly advise that you do not max out any existing lines of credit during the home buying process. Additionally, we recommend you stay away from making any large purchases. Large purchases during the mortgage process can have a negative impact on your credit score. Do not close any current credit card accounts, if you’d like to close out one of your accounts we strongly advise you to wait until after closing to do so. Additionally, you should always continue to pay all your bills on time. Following these steps can simplify your path to homeownership.

What will I need to apply for a mortgage?

When applying for a mortgage you will need copies of your last 2 years’ W2 and tax returns, If self-employed, copies of your last 2 years’ business return. During the home buying process, you will also need your most recent pay stubs for a 30 day period, Copies of your checking and savings accounts statements for 2 months, or any account you’re utilizing for the mortgage transaction. Additionally, you will need a list of all/any credit card accounts; including car loan/lease and/or student loans. Further documentation may be requested by our team if necessary. As always, our team of experienced mortgage professionals are by your side every step of the way from application to closing.

How do I get Pre-approved?

As a first-time home buyer or a repeated home buyer, it is important to get pre-approved before starting the home buying process.  In today’s market having a pre-approval gives both your real estate agent and the homeowner confidence that you are a committed and qualified buyer. Simultaneously giving you the ability to shop for homes within your budget that you know you can afford.
