1

Get Pre-Qualified
This is a simple step to see how much you can afford. After providing basic financial information, your bank will let you know if you're pre-qualified and for what amount. Keep in mind your credit score is a key component to your approval and rate.
 

2

Shop for a Home
Make a prioritized list of your must haves. As you shop for homes, evaluate them against this list knowing that you might not be able to get everything. Digital listings are great ways to stay informed on housing availability.
 

3

Close on the Home
Typically, it takes 45 days from loan application to loan closing. Your loan officer will guide you through this process to help you meet each milestone.
