About the Loan Process
There is no doubt that getting a mortgage is a complex process. You wouldn't be looking up loan information if it were possible to get a mortgage loan in a single day by filling out a simple application. But First Community Bank of Central Al. does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.
There are four important steps involved in obtaining a loan.
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? 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. 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: complete a pre-qualification
This is where the process really begins and First Community Bank of Central Al. can really save you money. You will give us details about your current job, your assets, and residence history. You'll supply your employment, asset, and residence history information. We will pull get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission. We will review this info and will provide a pre-qualification letter. Your real estate agent should use the pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're shopping for your new house with your REALTOR™, we find the best program for you.
Once you have made the offer and the sellers accept it, it's time to apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can apply online, right here on our website. At the end of this step, we'll order the appraisal of your new 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. We'll work with this company to ensure the papers your lender requires are avaiailable, 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 of closing. Because you won't have to coordinate this process, you get to think about the move, if you're going to repaint, new carpet, and all the details of moving into your new house.
