I recently worked with LANB on a mortgage. As a first-time home owner, I found LANB to not only be thorough, but also extremely patient with me throughout the process from application to closing. Other banks that I contacted could not accommodate my accelerated timeline. LANB staff generated paperwork on the day I called so that I could secure my spot in the competitive Los Alamos market.

Your mortgage checklist

The following information is usually required during the loan process—having it ready will make your application easier!

  • Your Social Security Number
  • Current pay stubs or, if self-employed, your tax returns for the past two years
  • Bank statements for the past two months
  • Investment account statements for the past two months
  • Life insurance policy
  • Retirement account statements for the past two months
  • Make and model of vehicles you own and their resale value
  • Credit card account information
  • Auto loan account information
  • Personal loan account information

If you currently own real estate, we’ll need:

  • Mortgage account information
  • Home insurance policy information
  • Home equity account information (if applicable)

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgages are popular with buyers who want to purchase a home with a small down payment. The requirements for borrowers are also lower than other types of mortgages. These loans require mortgage insurance for the entire term of the loan.

Conventional mortgages are good for buyers with strong credit scores and the funds available for a larger down payment. Mortgage insurance can be removed, if required at the beginning. Conventional mortgages are often seen as stronger offers to the seller, as well.

Veteran Administration (VA) loans allow qualified veterans to finance 100% of the home’s appraised value, which means no down payment is required.

We are happy to discuss your options in more detail—give us a call at (505) 662-5171.

It depends. Most mortgages are fixed rate, which means the interest rate will never change. There is also an adjustable rate mortgage (or ARM) in which the interest rate can change. This option is good for buyers who predict interest rates will decrease during the life of the loan.

The amount of money you’ll need to buy a home varies based on what type of mortgage loan you choose, your real estate market, your credit score, and many other factors.
