NASB Mortgage Application Process  

Get Pre-approved 

NASB recommends that you begin the home-buying process by getting pre-approved for a home loan.  

The pre-approval process will take into account how much you have for a down payment, your credit score, income, and any other factors that are unique to you.  

NASB also recommends applying to at least three mortgage lenders, which will give you an opportunity to evaluate the rates and the terms of each lender so you can choose the one that’s the best fit for you.  

If you are already pre-approved for a loan, both realtors and sellers will be more willing to work with you because they will see you as a serious buyer.  

Shop for Your Home and Make an Offer 

By getting pre-approved, you will know how much home you can afford. This step allows you to start shopping for a home within your price range.  

Once you find a home that you like and is within your price range, you will make an offer with the help of your realtor.  

Once the seller accepts your offer, you and the seller will sign a purchase agreement.  

Finalize the Loan 

This is when the loan application process really begins. This is what you can expect:  

  • Finalize the lender. You will officially choose the lender you want to work with.  
  • Underwriting begins. Once you have chosen the lender you want to work with, the loan will move into underwriting, where you can expect to submit a lot of documentation. The underwriter needs to validate your income, credit, and anything else that’s required. The faster you respond to these requests, the faster the process will progress. Once this process is completed, you will be “cleared to close.” 
  • Closing. In the days leading up to closing, you will receive the terms of your loan. It will likely be similar to what you received in the pre-approval process. At closing, you will bring your down payment and money to cover closing costs. You will also sign all the required documents. Once this process is complete, the property is put in your name, and the mortgage is finalized.
