FINANCING CHECKLIST

Home Financing ChecklistOne of the most important steps you will take when you prepare to search for your new home is to determine how much home you can afford, and then to secure a loan pre-approval for that amount.

At Liz Moore & Associates, we’ve tried to take much of the stress out of this process by providing experienced guidance on the pre-approval process, the numerous mortgage products available and even help you select the lender that will best meet your specific situation.

There are several documents you will need to gather in advance to expedite your loan application. At a minimum, you should have the information listed on our Home Financing Checklist.

Want to chat about mortgage options, rates, VA Loans, FHA,  Reverse Mortgages, Conventional Loans or getting approved ?

Contact me and I will put you in touch with one of our preferred lenders.
