  • Home Loan Pre-Approval Program

    Know before you go

    Call a Mortgage Consultant today at 1-877-731-4646

  • Save time and make your home buying experience go more smoothly with a pre-approval letter before you start looking. Our pre-approval program helps you understand how much of a loan you may qualify for, before you find a home and provides a potential competitive advantage when bidding against another buyer who isn’t pre-approved.

    Best of all, you can get a pre-approval determination in as little as 10 days. One of our Mortgage Consultants can walk you through the process in person or on the phone. 

    To help speed up the process, you should collect:

    • One month’s recent pay stubs
    • Two months’ account statements for assets (checking, savings, money market, CDs, etc.)
    • Two years’ W-2 statements
    • Two years’ income tax returns if self employed, compensated by commission or an independent contractor
    • A list of all your monthly expenses

    Contact one of our Mortgage Consultants today for more information:
