  • Home Appraisal
  • Title Insurance
  • Home Owners Insurance
  • Underwriting
  • Closing

What documents to I need to bring?

To apply for a loan, you will have to provide us with documentation of your financial situation. We will request a credit report and will verify the information provided in your loan application. Be prepared to give us:

  • Social Security numbers and Date of Birth for both you and any co-borrowers
  • Copies of checking and savings accounts statements for the past two months
  • Evidence of any other assets such as bonds, stocks, or money saved in retirement programs (i.e. 401k or 403b)
  • Recent paycheck stubs
  • W-2 forms, or income tax returns for the past two years to verify your income and proof of employment
  • Residence history for the past two years
