How do I get started?

Shopping for homes becomes a BLAST once you have confidence in the numbers. At 417 Home Loans we believe that is our mission: to be financial advisors just as much as we are lenders.  We lead with the heart of a teacher, sharing our decades of experience so that you can make wise decisions for one of monumental transactions in your lifetime.

It’s always a good idea to get preapproved before shopping.  You don’t want the excitement and fun to be ruined by surprises later.  The good news is that pre-approval is pretty quick!

4 Steps For a Pre-Approval:

  1. Chat with us for a half hour or so. Tell us what you want to make happen, and the monthly payment you’d like to shoot for.  We’ll ask you a few painless question so we can direct you towards the best type of loan and give you a heads up on anything to consider. 
  2. Fill in the blanks on our simple online application. This will take you about 15 minutes.
  3. Pull together all of the documents we’ll need to process your application. Note that it’s best to get us everything up front here so that we can evaluate every opportunity to get you the best rate and also any challenges we might face. 
  4. Get with your real estate agent and start shopping! Having a contracted agent on your side will help you navigate through the market and find the home with all the features you’re looking for.

Please know that by submitting this form you aren’t obligated in any way, shape, or form to move forward. This is simply the first step.
