How To Get Your Home Loan Approved Easily

George Sterling | Thursday, September 20th, 2012

If you are buying a house for the 1st time and need some help from the bank, you need to familiarize yourself with the loan process.

Following the 2008 financial crisis, banks are still hesitant in providing loans to individuals for home purchase. However, getting a loan is not something that should be ruled out by you because by following a few steps and briefing yourself about the loan process, you will ultimately get your home loan approved.

Keep Checking Your Credit

If you want a home loan, you should keep checking your credit history. You should keep a close eye on it and see where you stand.

A lot of us make the mistake of not checking our credit history and ultimately end up unnoticing errors that make our credit history look bad. Lenders are always reluctant to provide loans to individuals with poor credit history so make sure you keep a check and also try to take some steps to improve your history if it isn’t up to par.

Get Your Loan Pre-Approved

Many lenders tend to offer a pre-approval and if your lender does provide pre-approval on home loans, make sure you get your pre-approval letter. Why it is important to get a pre-approval letter is obvious: it will help you in understanding your options in a much better way.

Lenders’ pre-approval for loans will help you make an easy choice and will limit your confusion level by limiting your choices.  You will know what your budget is and you can ultimately decide the best house, in terms of affordability, for yourself.

Collect All Documentation

Once you have sat down with a lender and received a pre-approval letter, the next step is to choose a home. When selecting, make sure that the price of the house is not neck to neck with the amount of loan you are trying to get because you will have to pay a lot of additional money as fee when acquiring a house.

Make a wise choice and once you are done selecting a house, collect all necessary documentation. Once you have decided, you should then apply for the loan. Make sure you have every document ready such as financial status reports, employment letter, asset papers, liabilities and others. In order to avoid delays, make sure you work on collecting documentation before you apply for the loan so that whenever you pick a house, you can immediately apply for the loan and get it approved.

Follow Up With The Lender

Once you are done with the application process, don’t make the mistake of resting back and not keeping in touch with your lender. You should rather follow up with your lender to make sure your loan is processed quickly.

Not keeping in touch with the lender after applying will leave your loan application in a pile of other applications which will delay the approval process. Make sure your lender knows you well and make an extra effort to get your application approved.
