You Can Apply for a Home-Loan in 6 Easy Steps

We here at Affiliated Mortgage want to make sure that your Mortgage Process is as simple and efficient as possible. Here are the six steps to guide you through the whole process. It’s really not difficult at all! And Affiliated Mortgage will make it more convenient for you, at the lowest mortgage rates.

1. Get your Mortgage Pre-Approval 

You can get an assessment of your financial situation and be informed about the loan amount you qualify for. You need to get all your documents organised for this step. It makes house-hunting easier because it saves you the hassle of searching for houses that are outside your price range. 

2.  Purchase your House

With your price range in mind, you can carry out a more focused house-hunt. You can search online on websites like Zillow to look at some options that may attract you. Get in touch with a real estate agent and visit the properties to make your decision. Finally, once you’ve picked a house, you make an offer and sign a purchase agreement.

3. Apply for a Mortgage Loan

You need to fill in a loan application, which is standardised for most lenders. You will need to provide personal information (income, employment and assets) as well as that regarding the house you are buying and the type of loan you’re applying for. At the end of this step, you will get a Loan Estimate.

4. Get your Loan Processed 

At this stage, alongside the documents you have provided with your application, the lender may also order credit reports, and verify your income and assets. 

5. Get the Underwriting

This is the most crucial step, where the underwriter evaluates your application, and either accepts or rejects it. He evaluates the risk factor, and might approve the loan with certain conditions in some cases.

6. Get your Loan Approved

The Closing Disclosure confirms the costs in the Loan Estimate. You must review the Disclosure, 3 days prior to the closing, and the documents will be sent to the title company.

I cannot express my appreciation enough. Troy and his team really "Went to bat for me" during the whole loan process. Every obstacle we encountered was dealt with by Troy and his team. There was clear communication during the whole process. I was very happy with the service and friendly/ positive attitude that greeted you on the phone.

it was a very straight forward as easy process to work with Melissa Everhart. She helped us avoid making a possibly bad financial decision with a home we were looking into, and referred us to an insurance company with more affordable rates than the company we were currently using. I recommend her if you're in the Rapid City area

Melissa made sure that our first home buying venture ,mixed with a military move across country, was seemless. She listened to every question and concern. She always answered in a way that made the process easy to understand. Melissa understands as a military spouse just how difficult a pcs can be, and she made sure we had no surprises. She worked closely with our realtor and insurance agent. Can’t say enough about the integrity and professionalism!

It was a pleasure working with Troy and his team. Dealing with us from 700 miles away had to be a challenge but the value-added he provided made it easy for us and he gained our trust quickly and early on. He helped with insurers in the area and recommended inspections firms, etc. Very professional and i believe we made a friend also!!!

I ended up at Affiliated by chance. (I drive past there almost every day) when I decided to get serious about purchasing my first home I decided to stop it. I did shop around but no one could come close to offering me what Vern did.I couldn’t have chosen a better lender, affiliated will be my go to. The one I recommend to anyone who asks.Hoping to send you clients and more reviews like this one.Thank you for your kindness, humanity and honesty.Shelly

Being a homeowner is something I‘d always believed was beyond my grasp; I’d resigned myself to the idea that’d I be a renter, paying someone else’s mortgage, for the rest of my life. Today I officially became a homeowner for the first time and Ryan is the man that made it happen.

From the moment we started the mortgage process, Ryan has set a new standard for the phrase “on the ball”. His quick turnaround in finding me mortgage options and answering the myriad questions I had was beyond impressive and I truly got the sense that he was working every angle he could to find me the best solutions. I’ve heard countless horror stories from friends in the past about their mortgage process and I’m thrilled to say I don’t have any of my own to contribute.

Thank you, Ryan! Believe me when I say, I COULD NOT have done it without you!

Vern and Amy are great at being right on top of everything you need to refinance your mortgage in a short time frame. It was simple, done quickly, and a fast turn around. With Covid, everything was done online and through email. I don't even know what Amy looks like...lol. These two will get everything done for you that you need and answer all questions in a very timely manner. I highly recommend Affiliated for all your mortgage needs.
