Luckily, there are dozens of resources available to help guide new applicants through all the paperwork and documentation. And there are a few measures you can take to ensure that you are as prepared as possible before investing time and money in the application process.
1. Credit Score. Getting a credit appraisal early on in the mortgage application process will give you a better idea of your chances for approval. Credit reports can be secured from a few different sources at no charge to you.
2. Supporting Documents. The application process involves filling out an extensive online form, but you will also need some additional paperwork to submit with the main form. To streamline this process, do your homework and find out what documentation you will need ahead of time.
3. Work With Your Lender. Real estate financing professionals have insight into the process of loan application and approval. Take advantage of their experience. Mortgage applications require a considerable amount of personal information – employment specs, lists of assets and liabilities, projected income, etc. Try to have as much of the content organized and available before you begin.
