Our Process

We strive to do things differently. Mortgages are traditionally confusing, stressful and lengthy, but it doesn’t need to be that way. And at Movement, it won’t be. We are committed to making your mortgage experience simple, streamlined and stress-free, from start to finish.

Step 1

Initial Conversation

This first step sets the stage. You and your Movement loan officer will assess your credit, establish expectations and discuss your financing options.

Step 2


This is the step where we gather as much information as possible up front, giving us a major head start and allowing us to fly through the process.

Step 3

Gather documents

This is where you come in. We need your help getting your documents in as quickly as possible. You will team up with your loan officer to collect items such as W2s, Pay Stubs, Bank Statements and Employment History.

Step 4


We team up with an industry leading appraisal management company that helps us keep the ball rolling. We maintain a high standard for who we partner with, so that we can streamline what is often an extremely time consuming step.

Step 5

Upfront Underwriting

Movement underwrites every loan at the beginning of the loan process. This gives you a major advantage in a crowded market, and helps prevent any last minute rushing. This unique approach allows you to bypass an industry full of stressful and slow lenders. Our Underwriters assess the loan and aim to have it released from Underwriting within 6 hours.

Step 6

Approved With Conditions

Good news – your loan has made it through the initial stages of the process, and is ready for processing.

Step 7

7-Day Processing

Our process is goal-oriented rather than deadline-oriented. Most lenders attempt to just work towards a closing date or deadline. This often leads to problems and rushing around hours before closing or even missing the closing date. At Movement we do things differently. By working to a 7 day goal we can have closing documents out weeks before closing and avoid all the last minute craziness. This process is unique to Movement Mortgage and we process over 75% of our loans in 7 business days or less.

The Underwriter will now review your loan and verify that all conditions have been taken care of. The loan process is now complete and is ready for closing.

Step 9


We work alongside the closing attorney to assemble the final paperwork and confirm the total funds needed for the closing day. Everything we do leading up to this point ensures that the closing table is a smooth and exciting experience. Now, enjoy the moment as you receive the keys to your new home.
