FAQ's

How can we help you?

If you are a first time borrower, knowing what you can qualify for can be confusing and intimidating. The amount you qualify is primarily comprised of what your debt to income ratio is. When applying for a loan, we look at how much income the borrower(s) bring in on a monthly basis minus their liabilities.

Most people think they need to come up with 10%-20% down payment when purchasing a home. Although a large down payment can reduce your monthly mortgage payment or eliminate PMI, it is not necessary. As a matter of fact, most of Pollends loan programs require about 3%-3.5% down.

The mortgage process can be as fast as 7-10 days or last 30 days or longer. The speed of your mortgage depends on how fast you get your documents into our system and how busy the underwriters are. A good rule of thumb is to plan about 30 days from start to finish.

We will always need a full mortgage application, 2 years of tax returns, 60 days of bank statements, and your last 2 pay stubs. There are times we may need additional supporting documents.
