First Time Homebuyer Mortgage Loan Checklist

Looking to purchase a new home and not sure where to start? Speaking with a Loan Officer at Texas Premier Mortgage is the 1st step in the mortgage loan process. Your Loan Officer will evaluate your finances, credit, income, and overall loan profile to determine the best loan product and price range to stay in. Lets review some of the basics you will want to start rounding up before you go shopping.

  • Photo ID – make sure this is valid and when the expiration date is
  • Tax Returns for 2 years – submit all pages not just the 1st page
  • W2’s – for the last 2 years from all employers
  • 30 days of the Most Recent Paystubs
  • 2 months Bank Statements – from all checking accounts, savings accounts, money market, IRA, mutual fund and brokerage (stock) accounts of funds you will be using to close your loan
  • If VA: Certificate of Eligibility and DD-214

For other situations if your self employed depending on the type of business you run the bank could ask for additional information including your K1’s and Business Tax Returns. All these items in your checklist will help for a thorough review of your information and help identify any obstacles at the beginning stages.
