First Time Home Buyers

The Process

Becoming a first time homeowner is a major milestone that should be celebrated, but the excitement of buying a house can be quickly overshadowed by stress. What type of lender should you work with? What kind of loan should you get? And how long will the whole process take?

It’s normal for first time buyers to have a lot of questions, but purchasing your first house doesn’t have to be as complicated as it seems. In fact, if you work with the right lender, everything from filling out your first application to signing your final closing documents can be relatively stress-free.

At Veritas Funding, we go out of our way to ensure our first time homebuyers are not only initially educated, but continuously informed as well. We make things as simple and straight forward as possible, walk you through every step of the process, and promptly address any concerns or questions you may have. We genuinely care how you feel throughout the entirety of your loan, and we’re more than willing to do whatever we can to improve your homebuying experience.

Understanding the Steps in the Homebuying Process

Step 1: Applying

Once you know you’re interested in buying a house, you can either meet with one of our Loan Officers in person or submit an application through our app. We’ll ask you to answer some simple questions so we can learn more about you, your history, and your home buying needs.

Step 2: Processing

We will collect and verify the information we need to move your loan along in the process. This is usually when an official credit report is ordered, your employment and bank deposits are verified, and a title, appraisal, and inspection are ordered for the house you’re interested in.

Step 3: Underwriting

This is when we closely evaluate all of your documentation needed to complete your loan. We will review the loan program, property, and customer qualifications, double check for accuracy and eligibility, and be on the lookout for any red flags or mistakes.

Step 4: Funding and Closing

All of the final documents will be signed and your loan funds will be transferred. Once this is done, your loan process is officially complete!

VA Loans

VA Loans, also known as Veterans Affairs Loans or Military Home Loans, are mortgages backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. VA Loans were created to specifically help America’s military personal purchase homes even when they may not otherwise qualify. In order to be eligible for a VA Loan, you must be either active-duty service member, an honorably discharged Veteran who meets certain qualifications, someone who has served more than six years in the National Guard or the Selected Reserve, or a spouse of a service member who died in service.
