Getting a home loan involves four major steps.

We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

While you're picking out the home that's right for you, we're busy finding the loan program that's right for your situation.

Once you have made the offer and the sellers accept it, you should apply for the loan. Applying for a loan couldn't be much easier; you can apply online right here on our site.
