Through our partnership with Silverton Mortgage, we’ve made the mortgage loan process even easier! Silverton Mortgage, a recognized leader in the mortgage industry, has a dedicated team of loan originators that specializes in Mungo home buyers and are experts in new home construction lending.
To give you peace of mind, Silverton Mortgage offers an On-Time Closing Guarantee that will give you up to a $2000* credit on your closing costs if they are responsible for a delay in your closing.
You may also receive up to $3500** towards your closing costs if you choose Silverton Mortgage for the financing of your new Mungo home. This credit is from the builder, so it does not impact your interest rate in any way.
Both Silverton Mortgage and Mungo Homes are part of the Berkshire Hathaway® family of companies, so not only are we working toward the same end goal, we’re also familiar with each other’s processes and have streamlined communication, making your closing that much smoother.

What documents do I need to apply for a new home loan?
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.
What is a credit score?
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, though many loan programs consider scores as low as 580.

If Silverton fails to meet the Guarantee scheduled closing date, the $2,000 Guarantee will be in the form of a Silverton credit toward closing costs otherwise required to be paid by applicant. The Guarantee scheduled closing date is determined by mutual agreement of the applicant, Mungo and Silverton but must be a minimum of forty-five (45) days from the date of application with Silverton. Silverton will communicate the agreed upon scheduled closing date to the applicant by email. To be eligible for the Guarantee, all applicant(s)s must provide any information requested by Silverton within forty-eight (48) hours of Silverton’s request and must meet all of the following eligibility requirements: All information on the loan application must be accurate and must not contain fraudulent information or material misrepresentations. The appraised value for the property purchased from Mungo must be equal to or greater than the purchase price listed on the purchase agreement with Mungo. Applicant(s) must lock the Silverton loan rate and satisfy all loan requirements and conditions, including payment of all advance fee deposits, at least seven (7) business days prior to the Guarantee scheduled closing date. No loan or program changes are permitted less than seven (7) business days prior to the Guarantee scheduled closing date.

The following loan programs/applicants are not eligible for the Guarantee: Loans requiring a subordination of a prior loan; Loan applicants who have disputed credit accounts; loans to be secured by properties requiring repairs or re-inspection; loans to be secured by properties purchased through a “short-sale” or as a bank owned property; ; Mortgage Revenue Bond Programs; Construction or Renovation Loan Transactions; Jumbo Loans; Non-warrantable condominiums; Manufactured homes; Refinance Transactions.
