Getting pre-qualified is the initial step in the mortgage process, and it’s generally fairly simple. You supply a bank or lender with your overall financial picture, including your debt, income and assets. After evaluating this information, a lender can give you an idea of the mortgage amount for which you qualify.

After we receive a signed conditional Letter of Intent from the church, we shop the appraisal with our network of appraisers throughout the country.
