How the Mortgage Loan Process Works

There's little doubt that getting a mortgage loan is a complex process. You would not be looking up loan information if you could get a loan in a single day by filling out a simple application. But Tenby J. Dahman does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

Getting a mortgage loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This step is where Tenby J. Dahman can start saving you money. You will give us information on your current job, your assets, and your residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will pull get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission, of course). We will review this info and will give you a pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it can be a great tool when you make your offer!
