Mortgage FAQs

We have compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions.

How do I get pre-approved to purchase a home?
The fastest way to get the pre-approval to start shopping for your new home is to apply online.

How long will I be pre-approved?
Pre-approvals are good for up to 120 days.  In the event you do not find a home in that amount of time, we can extend the pre-approval by receiving some updated information.

When do I lock my rate?
When you have an accepted offer on the home you are going to purchase and pay the $599 application fee, the rate would need to be locked at that time to continue the process and order the appraisal.

How much are closing costs?

How long does the refinance process take?
