There are four important steps involved in getting a loan.

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

A couple of factors determine this amount. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the rubber meets the road and Tenby J. Dahman can really save you money. You will supply details about your current job, your assets, and residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will pull get your credit report and score (with your permission, of course). We will review this info and will provide a pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it can be a great tool when you make your offer!

While you're deciding on the home that's right for you, we're busy finding the loan program that's right for your situation.

Step three: apply for your loan

After you've made the offer and the sellers have accepted, it's time to apply for the loan. It couldn't be easier, and you can do it online, right here on our website. After the seller has accepted your offer and you have applied for your loan, we'll order the professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: funding

The real estate agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing of the sale. We'll work with this company to ensure the papers your lender needs are in order, and you will probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe do all the work to coordinate with this company to set your date to close.
