First time home buyer - here's what actually happens. A home has been placed on the market for which the seller has established an asking price as well as other terms. In effect, this is an offer. At this point, you have three choices:
If you choose this last option, the seller may accept, reject or make a counter-offer. There's no doubt that choosing a home is a big decision and you want to do it right so get approved.
In today's mortgage market getting approved for a mortgage before you start looking for a home is a great idea.
As a first time home buyer you want to be be sure you will be approved for a mortgage before you find a home and then find out you can't get a mortgage.
Getting pre approved should be like applying for a mortgage. Your loan application should be submitted to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac electronically. (Leaving out the address of the property.)
Once you have been approved electronically you will need to have a Uniform Residential Loan Application prepared and sent to you. After reviewing the application you will sign it and send it back to your lender.
Once your application and documents have been received your application will be submitted to underwriting. Normally in a few days you will have your loan approval or the underwriter will ask for any documents needed to approve your loan.
Now all you need is to find your home!
If you found a home you want to buy or are thinking of buying a home follow the steps above and you will be on your way to buying your first home.
Once you have found a home and have signed a sales contract the loan process becomes real easy. You will need to submit the sales contract and depending how long ago you were pre-approved you will only need updated pay stubs and updated bank statements. That's it!
