What should you expect when applying for a mortgage?

  1. Apply through one of our branches' Mortgage Loan Officers, or simply apply for pre-approval on your home loan through our quick, online mortgage digital application, available virtually anywhere.

  2. Once you apply, your loan officer will help to walk you through the rest of the process so if you ever have a question, we're here for you. If you applied for an online mortgage, you can expect the same personalized attention with one of our Digital Mortgage Loan Officers.

  3. Once a decision has been made on your mortgage application, we will contact you. If you are approved, your loan officer will reach out to discuss your loan amount, terms and payment information.

  4. Once you have found a home you love, your loan officer will continue to help walk you through closing on your new home so that if you ever need extra help, you can always reach us.

What are some tips for first-time homebuyers?

At Truliant, we strive to help each individual member or future member to navigate the tricky territory that is purchasing your first home. This is why we work to get to know you and your individual situation in order to recommend mortgage options that can work seamlessly into your life.

As we can help you with researching possible down payment and mortgage options you may qualify for, there are other things you can do early to set yourself up for smooth sailing later.

  1. If you haven't already, start saving for your down payment early. Many people recommend a 20% down payment, however, there are options to put down as little as 3% on your new home.

  2. Determine how much you can afford in your new home. 
    Calculate your loan payment using our mortgage loans calculator below to get an idea of the home price that would best work for you.

  3. Check your credit score. This may mean running an annual free credit report, disputing any inaccuracies and putting a hold on any purchases which could hit your credit report.

  4. Get pre-approved. When you have applied and become pre-approved for your first home, you can tour homes already understanding your mortgage terms and monthly payment information, allowing you to enjoy the process that much more.

  5. Budget for closing costs. These can run about 2-5% of your loan amount and will need to be paid upon closing. Closing costs are not a part of your mortgage.

  6. Save for good homeowners insurance. Once you've closed on your new home, be sure to protect your new investment with good homeowners insurance. At Truliant, we also offer homeowners insurance to help you keep your home safe.

Prioritizing your mortgage needs.

Answer the following questions to help prioritize your needs. The best mortgage for you will depend on the answers:

  • What options feature the lowest monthly payment?
  • What options require the lowest down payment?
  • What's my credit score and how does that affect my options?
  • Am I eligible for government-backed loans?
  • What's going to cost me less in the long run?
  • How long am I planning on staying in my home?
