What Is the US Mortgage Process?
When buying a home in the United States, most buyers opt to take out a home loan, or a mortgage, in order to get the capital they need to make the purchase and spread the payments out over time. So, the very first step in securing a mortgage is to determine how much you can afford to spend on a home. This will give you an idea of how much money you’ll need to borrow from a mortgage company.
Once you’ve come up with a budget, you may want to get pre-approved for a home loan by a mortgage lender. After a mortgage lender looks over your current financial situation, they may issue you a pre-approval letter that can help expedite the home-buying process.
Now comes the exciting part: finding a home. Once you find a home that you’d like to buy, you’ll make an offer to the buyer. If the buyer accepts your offer, then you’re well on your way to purchasing a home. You’ll just have to order a home inspection and complete the rest of the mortgage process.
You can return to the mortgage lender that gave you a pre-approval letter—or a different lender, if you can find a better interest rate—and fill out a full mortgage application. You’ll give the lender certain documentation and they’ll review your financials to create a loan estimate. From there, you’ll just have to have the home appraised, wait as the loan is underwritten and processed, and then officially close the deal.
What to Expect with Griffin Funding
When you work with Griffin Funding, the first step in the process will be speaking with one of our mortgage strategists, who will evaluate the best loan options for you and find the lowest interest rate you qualify for based on your credit score and other determining factors. We will provide you with a personalized analysis that lays out your loan options, so you can compare your options and decide which one best suits your needs.
Then, you’ll complete a loan application either over the phone or through our secure digital mortgage platform. Once you’ve completed the loan application, we can lock in your interest rate and help you along through the rest of the mortgage process.
At Griffin Funding, we strive to tailor home loans to your unique situation while keeping our lending process as straightforward as possible. If you have any questions about us or concerns during the mortgage process, you can always reach out to us for support.
