About the Mortgage Loan Process

There's quite a lot involved in oder to get a mortgage. You wouldn't be looking up loan information if it were possible to get a mortgage loan in one day by filling out a simple application. We do the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.

Getting a mortgage loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

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? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. 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 is where the process really begins and Coastal Mortgage Corp. can really save you money. You will provide details on your current job, assets, and residence history. You'll provide information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We get your permission to run your credit score and report. When we review all this info we will give you a pre-qualification letter. Your real estate agent should use your pre-qual (as they may call it) to make the best offer on the home you choose. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're looking for your new home with your agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

After you've signed the offer and the sellers have accepted, you should apply for the loan. Applying for a loan couldn't get much easier; you can apply right here on our site. After the offer has been accepted and you have submitted your loan application, we will order the professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: funding

Your real estate agent and the seller's will coordinate to designate an escrow/title company to handle the funding of your loan once it's approved. We'll work with this company to make sure the papers your lender will require are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign everything at this company's officeWe coordinate with the title company on your date of closing. Since you will not have to worry with this coordination, you get to think about moving, if you're going to repaint, carpet, and all the details of getting your new home.

You've answered a few questions, provided lots of information, applied online, and the next thing you know, you're moving in! Coastal Mortgage Corp. is in the business of mortgage loans; you're not — so we take care of the details. Doesn't that make sense?
