North Atlanta Home Mortgage Process

You're ready to buy your  dream home, your first home or that vacation home, and need assistance.
To make that dream come true you may need a mortgage loan. A mortgage  loan is used by home buyers to acquire funds to buy real estate.

This helps you lock in a rate, know what your home payments will be,  while being presented to the home seller in a positive light. Steps include

- application and interview
- buyer provides pertinent documentation, including verification of employment
- credit report is requested
- appraisal scheduled for current home owned, if any

2. Underwriting - Your loan package is submitted to the underwriter for approval. This occurs between days 21 or 30.
