However, before choosing your preferred lender let’s get you organized to help make the mortgage process easier.

  • Two years of W2’s
  • Your most recent pay stub
  • Two months of bank statements
  • Copy of Driver’s License
  • Credit Report (your loan officer will pull this for you once you grant permission)

Depending on your situation you may also be asked to provide a copy of your homeowner’s insurance and a copy of your most recent mortgage payment when you are preparing to refinance.
