Items needed for a loan application may include W-2s and tax returns from the last two years, current pay stubs with year to date earnings, statements for checking, savings, other bank or investment accounts, proof of monthly rental or mortgage payments, and the names of current or past employers. There are also programs available for buyers with non-traditional careers; don’t let the fact that you don’t have access to some of these documents keep you from applying. Two years of employment history is required.
Along with a credit report, lenders will request a credit score (FICO) to help determine whether or not you are eligible for a loan. The score is a credit overview and is weighed by the following:
35% payment history
30% amounts owed
15% length of credit history
10% new credit
10% types of credit used
A median credit score (FICO) ranges from 690 to 740.
There are six steps to the mortgage process: Pre-Approval, Submitting Initial Docs, Processing, Underwriting, Pre-Closing, and Closing. Click here to watch a short video walking you through the whole thing.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) – the total yearly cost of a mortgage expressed as a percentage. It includes interest and other finance charges such as points, origination fees and mortgage insurance.
