mortgages Buying a Home - Securing a Mortgage Loan

Buying a Home - What steps need to be taken to secure a mortgage loan?

 The first step in securing a mortgage loan is to complete a loan application. To do so, you'll need the following information. 

  • Pay stubs for the past 2-3 months
  • W-2 forms for the past 2 years
  • Information on long-term debts
  • Recent bank statements
  • tax returns for the past 2 years
  • Proof of any other income
  • Address and description of the property you wish to buy
  • Sales contract

 During the application process, the mortgage lender will order a report on your credit history and a professional appraisal of the property you want to purchase. The application process typically takes between 1-6 weeks.
