About the Loan Process

Make no mistake, there's a lot involved when you get a mortgage loan. You wouldn't be researching mortgage loans if you could get a mortgage loan in one day with 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: Decide how much you can afford

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? 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. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the process really begins and SkyWest Mortgage can really save you money. You will give us info about your current job, your assets, and residence history. You'll provide your employment, asset, and residence history information. We get your permission to pull your credit score and report. After we've finished reviewing your information, we'll provide a pre-qualificaiton letter. Your REALTOR® should use your pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're deciding on the home that's right for you, we're busy finding the loan program that's just right for your unique situation.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

Once you have made the offer and the sellers have accepted, you should apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can do it online, right here on our site. After the offer has been accepted and you have applied for your loan, we will order a professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: your loan is funded

Your real estate agent and the seller's will work together to decide on an escrow/title company to take care of the funding of your loan. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all 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 don't have to worry with this coordination, you get to concentrate on moving logistics, paint colors, new carpet, and all the details of moving into a new house.

You've answered some few questions, given us detailed information, applied online, and the next thing you know, you're deciding when to move in! We take care of all the loan details so you can focus on finding the new home that's right for you.
