The customer wants to purchase the home and is ready to apply for a loan. The loan process requires the submission of a lot of information to determine the customer’s creditworthiness. The application is the opportunity for the customer to provide us with the information we need to make an informed decision and potentially approve their loan request. The application can be submitted either via a paper application or through an online application. As the seller, you will also need to supply information on the home the customer wishes to purchase and on the community where the home is located. Our dedicated Mortgage Loan Originators are available to help you and the customer understand and complete the loan process. Upon submission of the application and seller information, we will review the application and make a decision on the loan request.Learn More
Upon an approval decision, we will issue a conditional approval and inform you and your customer of their approval. The approval notice will have the terms of the loan approval and the conditions that need to be satisfied to continue with the loan. Our Mortgage Loan Originator will reach out to inform your customer of the loan terms and pending conditions.
To move forward with the loan process, the conditions listed on the approval need to be satisfied for us to issue a contract package to be executed. Certain conditions will need to be supplied by the customer and others will need to be supplied by you as the seller. The conditions include items such as verification of employment, verification of income, a copy of the community site-lease agreement, a copy of the home invoice or home title, etc.
After the conditions have been submitted and accepted, it is time to order the contract package to close the loan. We will create and email over the contract package for your customer to sign and submit.
