Getting a home loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

This is a function of a couple things. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? 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. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

This is where the process really begins and F&T Mortgage, Inc. NMLS # 168839 (www.nmlsconsumeraccess.org) can really save you money. You will give us information on your employment, assets, and residence history. You'll give us information on your employment, asset, and residence history.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have signed the offer and the sellers accept it, it's time to apply for the loan. It couldn't be easier, and you can do it online, right here on our website. Finally, we'll order an appraisal of your new home.

Step four: funding

The agents will find an escrow/title company to handle the "funding" and closing of the sale. We'll work with this company to make sure all the papers your lender will require are in order, and you will probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe do all the work to coordinate with the title company to set your date to close.
