Frequently Asked Questions - Mortgage Loans

The first step would be to visit with a mortgage expert from ACCESSbank to determine which loan works best for you. Our mortgage lending team will help you determine the loan amount you may qualify for. Throughout your home-buying journey, they will provide you with the valuable information you need, and the customer experience you deserve. 
To help determine how much house you can afford, it's good practice to use the 36% rule, which states your monthly mortgage expenses and other debt payments should not exceed 36% of your gross monthly income. Use our mortgage calculators to help you determine what kind of mortgage you might qualify for, or contact our mortgage team to discuss any questions you may have. 
It depends which type of mortgage loan you use. If you want a conventional mortgage, lenders typically require a 20% down payment. However, for loans like VA or FHA, the down payment is much lower. Our mortgage team will work with you to find the best mortgage solution. 
The following information is typically required during the Mortgage Loan Process:
  • Social Security Number(s) for all borrower(s)
  • Current pay stubs and previous two years of W-2s for all borrower(s)
  • If self-employed, most recent two years of tax returns,  including all pages and schedules
  • Bank statements for the previous two months
  • Investment account statements for the previous two months
  • Retirement account statements for the previous two months
  • Credit card account information
  • Auto loan account information
  • Personal loan account information
  • Fully signed purchase contract (if purchasing a home) 
In addition to the down payment and monthly mortgage payment, you also have:
  • Closing costs
  • Real estate agent commission
  • Property taxes
  • Homeowners insurance
  • Mortgage insurance
  • HOA's (if applicable)
  • As a homeowner, you're responsible for upkeep and maintenance. It's a good idea to have extra money budgeted for those expenses. 
There are several ways to improve your chances of getting a mortgage:
  • Check your Credit Report:
    • Lenders review a detailed report of your credit history to determine whether you qualify for a loan and at what rate. 
  • Fix any Mistakes:
    • Once you have your credit report, don't assume everything is accurate. Take a close look to see if there are mistakes that could negatively affect your credit. Check your credit score at least six months before you plan to shop for a mortgage.
  • Improve your Credit Score:
    • A credit score is the single number that lenders use to evaluate your credit risk and determine how likely you are to make timely payments to repay a loan. In general, the higher your credit score, the better the mortgage rate you can get. 
  • Lower your Debt-to-Income Ratio:
    • A debt-to-income ratio compares the amount of debt you have to your overall income. It's calculated by dividing your total recurring monthly debt by your gross monthly income, expressed as a percentage. Lenders look at this to measure your ability to mange the payments you make each month, and determine how much house you can afford.
