At WBM, one of the ways we streamline the mortgage process is by partnering with a leading appraiser who can rush the appraisal process. (This step can be very time-consuming otherwise.) You will first receive a preliminary approval based on the initial information collected. Once the complete loan package is received, the underwriting process begins.
Your loan’s underwriter (the lender) will review your application, the appraisal information and confirm that all necessary conditions have been met. At this point, the mortgage application process is complete and your loan is ready for closing.
We coordinate with the closing attorney to compile all of the required paperwork and confirm the amount of funding to be underwritten in the mortgage. We help make sure that this process goes as quickly and smoothly as possible, to get your funds fast. We then work with the escrow team and meet with you at their office to sign off on all of the paperwork.
Once everything is signed, the title agent hands you the keys to your new home!
