Minimal paperwork and negotiating power with certainty of close. We’ll back your earnest money up to $10,000 if we fail to close.


Step 3: Make Your Offer on a Home!

Make your offer! With our Platinum Pre-Approval, your offer is as reliable as an all-cash offer, giving you negotiating power. Both you and the seller will have certainty of close.


Step 4: Lock-in Your Rate & Secure Financing

As soon as you make an offer on a home, you can lock in the interest rate to avoid the risk of a rise in rates prior to loan closing. You’ll just give us the property address and confirm you want to move forward with financing with us. We’ll finalize your loan in 2-3 weeks. Just let us know!


Step 5: Get your Inspection, Appraisal and Title


You or your Realtor will be responsible for negotiating repairs or pricing adjustments. You do not need to involve us in the process.


We rush order all appraisals to make sure they do not hold up the process.


We handle clearing title-related items and will alert you of any issues that would prevent a clean transfer of ownership to you.

Step 6: Close on Your Home

We’ll schedule closing and will send you all the documents needed to close in advance.
