1.

The first step toward a home purchase is getting pre-qualified for a loan. Your Loan Officer will review your financial information and determine how much you are qualified to borrow. As a pre-qualified buyer, your offer on a home is more likely to be accepted.

2.

Once you have found a home, you will make an offer to buy it from the seller. A real estate professional will conduct negotiations and a contract will be submitted to purchase, accompanied by the pre-approval letter. Once your offer is accepted, you will begin the application process.

3.

When the seller accepts your offer, you begin the mortgage process. Your Loan Officer will gather your financial information, loan application and provide the initial disclosures based on your loan terms.

4.

In the days leading up to settlement, you will be sent final documentation about your loan, including the Closing Disclosure. You must review, sign and return the paperwork a minimum of three days prior to your scheduled closing date.

5.

Your settlement documents will include instructions on how to make your first payment. While First Home Mortgage services many of our loans, it is possible servicing will be transferred. You will be mailed a notification that designates your mortgage servicer.

1.

The first step toward a home purchase is getting pre-qualified for a loan. Your Loan Officer will review your financial information and determine how much you are qualified to borrow. As a pre-qualified buyer, your offer on a home is more likely to be accepted.

2.

First, identify a property that needs work that you want to renovate. From there, you will provide the following to your loan officer to prepare preliminary figures and make sure you qualify for this specific property and renovation amount. You will then receive a pre-approval letter and make the offer.

3.

The first step in the renovation process will be scheduling an appointment with a licensed consultant off of HUD’s consultant roster; they will help you determine the mandatory items that have to be done to get the home up to the minimum property standards for the appraisal and help you devise the scope of work for your wish-list items.

4.

In the days leading up to settlement, you will be sent final documentation about your loan, including the Closing Disclosure. You must review, sign and return the paperwork a minimum of three days prior to your scheduled closing date.

5.

During Post Closing, your contractor can begin the work. You will start making payments which works the same as a standard loan unless you’ve financed payments into the loan for when the home will be uninhabitable during the renovation.

This is by far the most amazing company I have dealt with. This was my first time purchasing a home. I had no clue what I was doing. They showed me every step that was necessary in order for me to get into the home.
