How the Loan Process Works
There can be no doubt ; getting a mortgage is a complex process. You would not be looking up loan information if it were possible to get a mortgage loan in a single day with a simple application. We do most of the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.
Getting a mortgage loan involves four major milestones.
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? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.
Step two: complete a pre-qualification
This is where the process really begins and Family Mortgage Company of Hawaii, Inc. NMLS #244497 can really save you money. You will give us information about your employment, your assets, and your residence history. You'll supply information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will get your credit report and score (with your permission, of course). When we review this information we will provide a letter of pre-qualification. With this letter, your REALTOR® will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're picking out your new home, we're busy researching the loan that's just right for your unique situation.
Step three: apply now! We make it easy
Once you've made an offer and it's been accepted, you should apply for the loan. Applying for your loan couldn't get much easier; you can apply right here on our site. At the end of this step, we'll order the appraisal of your new home.

The real estate agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" and closing. We'll coordinate with this company to ensure the papers your lender requires are in order, and you will probably}likely sign all these papers at this company's officeWe do all the work to coordinate with the title company on your date to close.
