Understanding the Loan Approval Process

Human approval of loans can sometimes be necessary. While other lenders might shy away from this approach, I work tirelessly to make sure everyone - particularly veterans - receives equal chances at owning the home of their dreams.

If your financial details are accurate and our computer system approves of your loan application, my team will quickly send a pre-approval letter with a loan summary detailing its specifics as well as an outline of any anticipated closing costs - making this an excellent way to start house hunting right away!

However, Not Everyone Receives Instant Pre-Approval:

Manual Review of Your Files

Sometimes our computer system cannot make an instant decision on your loan application; therefore, an actual person must verify all details before reaching a conclusion. What you should know:

Few lending teams, like mine, conduct in-depth reviews prior to providing pre-approvals. Many lenders prefer not to conduct these thorough assessments due to time and cost considerations when staff must review files which might not lead to loans.

However, I take a different approach. To ensure maximum success with home buying, a thorough review is absolutely essential.

Simply stated: If an automated system cannot approve your loan application, manual underwriting (aka human intervention) may be necessary. In such an instance, we would need human involvement for approval purposes - this process may include human non-automated underwriting of loan applications as a result of which they would require human manual review for approval purposes. If this occurs:

Before issuing a pre-approval letter, we will conduct a manual review to ascertain the status of your loan application.

Manual reviews depend on many different factors. We may need to verify your payment history if your landlord claims that there have been missed payments; otherwise this can present its own challenges.

However, those submitting applications through our computer system typically don't need to verify their rent history; those going through manual reviews always must do so.

Understanding My Loan Approval Process

Let's examine my loan approval process, which stands out from others:

1. The Basics:

Prior to issuing an approval letter, I may request basic documents like pay stubs or W-2s from active-duty military members; for others this process could take a bit longer.

2. Get to Know My Processing Team:

My team is truly exceptional. If they need something from you, they begin by gently reminding and then more aggressively following up if necessary; especially when dealing with manual underwriting under tight time constraints. Their persistence comes from their dedication to ensure your loan closes on schedule; each member of my team combines experience and passion for serving our clients.

3. VA Underwriters:

It has been my honor and privilege to train and work with some of the finest VA underwriters in the nation; having trained thousands over my career. Their meticulous approach ensures that your pre-approval process will be accurate and trustworthy.

4. The Final Step:

Following underwriter review, your final step in pre-approval is receiving a loan commitment with additional conditions attached, such as appraisal fees or title work (and in certain states even termite inspections), making this pre-approval one of the strongest available to you.

5. Our Time Together:

Once your file has been approved, I will organize a meeting to discuss houses, the real estate market, closing costs, interest rates, strategies and more - my primary goal being ensuring you fully comprehend every element before starting working with a real estate agent to find your dream home.
