Loan Process

Step 1

Speak with a Mortgage Consultant

An AMC Mortgage Consultant will walk you through the whole process to ensure you achieve your purchase goals. Your Mortgage Consultant will assess your credit-worthiness, establish expectations and timelines, and discuss loan options.

Step 2

Pre-Approval

After your initial conversation, your Mortgage Consultant will ask you to fill out the online application and request documents to determine how much you can qualify for. Typically, we will request tax returns, W-2’s, 2 most recent months of bank statements, and pay stubs. A pre-approval is important because sellers will not entertain offers without a pre-approval letter.

Step 3

Appraisal

The property will need to be appraised by a licensed appraiser and the appraiser will set up an inspection to view and take photos of the property. We will coordinate this on our side and the appraiser assigned will be contacting you shortly. When the appraisal is complete you will receive an e-mail from your Mortgage Consultant/processor with the attached report.

Step 4

Process & Underwrite Loan

Our team works on verifying your income, assets, debt and property details to issue a final approval for the loan. You may be asked for additional documents during this time.

Step 5

Final Loan Approval

After all closing conditions have been satisfied, your loan will be approved. Usually, a Closing Disclosure is sent out at this time. Note, Borrowers are not allowed to sign loan documents until three business days after they have signed the Closing Disclosure.

Step 6

Closing

Once loan documents have been signed and reviewed, the loan is eligible for funding! The title company or realtor will give you the keys to your new home!
Congratulations!
