Items You Need When Applying For a Loan

Have These Items Ready When You Apply For a Loan

It used to be that lenders mailed out verifications to employers, banks, mortgage companies, and so on, in order to verify the data supplied by borrowers. Nowadays, the interest is often in speed and getting answers quickly so alternate documentation has become more widely used. Alternate documentation means that underwriting answers can be obtained with information supplied directly from the borrower instead of waiting around for verifications to come back in the mail.

The following is required for most standardized loans as part of alternate documentation processing. Items may differ according to whether your loan is a conforming (Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac), non-conforming (jumbo) loan, government loan, or a portfolio loan.

Verifications are still mailed out, but usually as part of quality control procedures.

These are the things you need to supply to your lender to get a quick approval using alternate documentation

Jim is a wonderful realtor for your commercial or residential real estate sale or purchase - he was both a buying agent and a selling agent for us on several occasions and we could not have made a better choice. His knowledge of the local market and experience are second to none!

Jim is a very straight-forward, knowledgeable, and successful realtor who I would not hesitate a second to call on again if needed. Thanks to Jim, we priced our house $15,000 higher than another realtor suggested we list it at, and we got our asking price. Jim helped us through the entire process and helped to make it a lot less stressful experience. I also know Jim to be a very dedicated and involved family man and solid individual.
