Mortgage Loan Checklist

If you're considering purchasing or refinancing a home in the near future, it's a good idea to begin putting together the information that will be needed during the mortgage process. Getting all the information to your loan officer at the beginning of the loan process will make your loan much simpler to work with for everyone involved, and can shorten the total loan process dramatically (i.e. not just by days, but by weeks).

The checklist below lists the most common items that may be required during the mortgage process. Depending on the loan type you select and your particular situation, you may need to provide more or less information than is covered in the list below. Once you have selected a loan with one of our loan officers, they will be able to tell you exactly what information you'll need to provide.
