    VIEWING YOUR LOAN details and progress is easy.  After application, you have access to a private secure area of our web site where you can view all aspects and progress of your loan! [Login into your account]

    We also offer a Smartphone app for iPhone or Android. Install it to get instant push notifications every time someone touches your application so you always know how your loan is progressing! 

    AFTER INITIAL APPLICATIONS, your Loan Officer will work with you to answer any questions about your loan. They will be happy to discuss your loan wants, needs, goals, abilities, and the overall VA loan mortgage process to ensure that you're comfortable with the loan you've selected. No matter how you've applied, you'll be able to make changes to your loan request, adjusting such features as your loan type, or down payment.

    ELECTRONIC SIGNING, as we progress with your VA loan application, you will will need to sign a copy of the application. This can be sent to you by fax, Email, postal mail, or courier, but almost always these days we send it via E-Mail for Electronic Signatures.

    PROCESSING YOUR LOAN, AND GETTING A DECISION for most loans, your application is run through automated underwriting systems (LP/DU), which are designed to provide fast initial results, often with reduced documentation. In fact, most loans can have a initial decision within minutes. The initial decision is not the final decision, as an Underwriter will need to review your full file, but getting an initial answer is the first step, and a major initial hurdle.

    With us, you can apply and close on many loans in a very short time period. However, each loan is different, and its important to communicate regularly with your Loan Officer throughout the period leading up to your closing date. This will allow you to be prepared in the event additional information is needed to finalize the loan.
