Home Loan Checklist

     After you have received your prequalification letter, freeze your credit activity! The initial credit application that you fill out with your lender is not the final application.  The final application is signed at closing. If your financial condition changes during the period between the initial application and closing then those changes need to be addressed in the final application and loan is re-underwritten. A final credit report, called a “soft pull”, is required within 48 hours prior to closing to make sure there are no new inquires or accounts. Be prepared to offer explanation on any recent credit inquires.
     To ensure a smooth closing without delay, use the following checklist to have everything ready for your lender ahead of time.

  • $450.00 For application fee (to cover appraisal). Credit card or debit card preferred.
  • Current pay stub to cover a minimum of 30 days. (If you get paid weekly that means 5 pay stubs).
