TIP #1 : HAVE YOUR DOCUMENTS TOGETHER
Gather your bank statements, pay stubs, tax returns and other documents as soon as possible- even before you begin looking for a house to buy in Lake Ashton. Getting these documents together in advance will reduce the time it takes to get your loan approved and processed. Not sure what documents you need? Contact your local bank or mortgage lending institution for a checklist.
TIP #2: WORK WITH AN EXPERIENCED MORTGAGE LENDER
Find an experienced professional with a proven track record. Make sure that your mortgage consultant works for a company that can provide a wide selection of mortgage products. Ask what the average time is for processing a loan application, and how quickly they will be able to complete your mortgage.
TIP #3: CONTACT YOUR LENDER ON THE DAY OR DAY BEFORE YOUR CLOSING
A day or two before closing contact your lender and ask if everything is ready for the closing date. It never hurts to make one, final verification with the lender. Notoriously, they ask for information at the last minute.
While the closing process may seem overwhelming it can go smoothly if you prepare. Don’t hesitate to ask questions, and be in constant communication with those working on your behalf.
