The Mortgage Process: What You Need to Know [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are you thinking of buying a new home in Oro Valley, Marana, Dove Mountain, Catalina, or Northwest Tucson? If so, you may have some questions about the mortgage process.

These kinds of questions are common. Most of the questions that my clients typically have about the mortgage process are things like:

  • How much house can we afford?
  • How much of a down payment do we really need?
  • What if my credit score isn’t as high as it should be?
  • What kind of paperwork do we need to gather up for this?
  • How do appraisals work? (And what happens if there’s a problem with the appraisal?)

This infographic should help answer some of your questions about what you need to qualify to buy your new home and what steps you need to take to get your mortgage process started. As always, I’m always here for my clients to answer all your questions and guide you through your home buying process. (Check below the infographic for helpful links.)

Don’t let any of this intimidate you. I personally walk every one of my clients through every step of buying a home to make it as easy and stress-free as possible. I want you to love the process as much as you love your new home.

If you want to do a little research on your own, check out this mortgage calculator to get an idea of how much house you can afford. Then, try out a property search to see what homes are available now in Tucson.
