The application process

These 4 steps will help keep you on track

1. File an application

Consider filing your application about 3 months before you want to move into your new home. This will allow you to get financing in order and may help prevent delays at closing.

2. Get an estimate

The lender will send you a Loan Estimate, which includes info about the terms of the loan such as the interest rate, monthly payment and added fees.

3. Review the estimate

Be sure you understand and agree with everything in the Loan Estimate. Consult your real estate agent or Home Lending Advisor if you need help.

4. Show you’re ready

If you’re happy with the Loan Estimate, notify your Home Lending Advisor that you would like to proceed with the application.

The documents you’ll need

  • Your most recent one month’s pay stub(s)
