A second home means the vacation
never has to end.

When you are ready to make your second home dream a reality,
we can get you there.

Your second home is waiting.

Where have you been dreaming to call home? Are you looking for an ocean front view, a place to ski, or something adjacent to the green? Whatever your dream, your second home is a special place, with special home finance considerations. Let’s get you there.

Second homes have unique financial and lending requirements.

Second homes will have special considerations for financial and lending requirements. We can help you determine the affordability of a vacation home, and guide you through the specific lending requirements that are needed for your second home.

With our large selection of loan options available, we can find the perfect financing for the other home you have been dreaming of. We can tell you the requirements necessary to make your vacation home a reality.

Things To Consider


Will you rent your second home
when not in use?

If you plan on renting out your vacation home when you aren’t staying in it, a lender may view it as an investment property rather than a second home. Lending requirements may be different for investments than vacation homes. We can show you the difference.

How far away is it from your
primary home?

Vacation and second homes have unique lending stipulations, like how far away your second home can be from your primary residence. With so many different loan options and requirements for a second home, we can help you decide what program is well suited for the specific property you are looking at.

Who else will live in the home?

Your second home may be occupied by family or friends, but to be a true second home you cannot collect any rents. We can help you distinguish between second home and investment home lending requirements in order to find the loan which matches your goals.

The Loan Process

1.

Get
Pre-Approved


This is the time to get in the know. A pre-approval will give you an advantage when you find your perfect home. We can tell you what you need to get pre-approved, so you know the exact loan amount you qualify for, what your monthly payment will look like, and how much taxes and insurance will be. With a pre-approval, the loan process will be smoother and your offer will be stronger.

2.

Loan
Application


Your application will provide a complete picture to loan investors of your assets, debts and what you are buying. It will take into account documents such as pay stubs, proof of income, tax returns, employment history, and information on all debts, assets, and sources for down payments. Don’t worry, we will request these documents as applicable for your loan application so that you can be fully prepared.

3.

Select Your
Loan Program


Fixed rate? Adjustable? FHA? There are multiple loan options that may fit your unique needs, and we can help you choose. Are you looking for the consistent rates and payments that a fixed rate loan can provide? Do you want the short-term benefits of lower rates that an adjustable rate loan can bring? Our extensive portfolio of loan options means you have more options available to get just what you need.

4.

Processing and
Underwriting


Your loan has specific investor guidelines that must be met, and an underwriter will review your documents to be sure that you meet them. While an underwriter reviews your file, an appraisal will be ordered on the home. Additional information may be requested, so don’t panic if you have to turn in more documents. That’s just the underwriter working hard to get your final approval.

5.

Loan
Approval


Before your loan is approved, you will receive pre-approval and a list of closing conditions that need to be met. These conditions can include verification that your employer is current and proof that homeowner’s insurance has been obtained. Once closing conditions have been satisfied, the underwriter issues a clear to close. Congratulations, your loan has been approved!

6.

Close
the Loan


With an approved loan, you are on the home-stretch towards closing. The lender will send closing documents to a title company that draws up paperwork and arranges for signing of documents. Once the documents have been signed and funding conditions have been met, the title is recorded and the process is complete. You are a proud owner of your new home, and the keys are yours!
