But Ashok Lakshmanan does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four primary steps involved in obtaining a loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.
