But PREMIERE MORTGAGE SERVICES INC. does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four primary steps involved in obtaining a mortgage loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

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? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. 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 PREMIERE MORTGAGE SERVICES INC. can really save you money. You will provide information on your employment, your assets, and residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will get your credit report and score (with your permission, of course). After we've finished reviewing the provided information, we'll give you a pre-qualificaiton letter. Be careful with this letter — it is a great tool when you make your offer!

Step three: apply for your loan

After you've signed an offer and the sellers accept it, it's time to apply for the loan. Applying for your loan could not be much easier; you can apply right here on our site. After the seller has accepted your offer and you have submitted your loan application, we'll order a professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: your loan is funded

The agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing of the sale. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all the papers your lender requires are in order, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe do all the work to coordinate with this company to set your closing date. Since you don't have to coordinate this process, you get to think about the move, if you're going to repaint, carpet, and the details involved in moving into your new house.
