Our Process

We are committed to making this experience simple and enjoyable from beginning to end. We've streamlined our process to ensure that buying your home is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Conversation

This first step is crucial and one that will set the stage for the entire process going forward. You and your Movement loan officer will assess credit-worthiness, establish expectations, and discuss some available financing options.

Application

The goal of our application is to gather as much information as possible up front. This gives us a major head start and allows us to fly through the process.

Documents

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

Appraisal

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

Upfront Underwriting

Movement Mortgage 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. Our "backwards" approach is unique, and 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.

Approved with Conditions

Congrats, you're now approved with conditions. Conditions are like little red flags that show there are still items to address. You will work with your loan officer and resolve these. Now it's time to move forward into processing.

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.

Final Underwrite

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.

This is a simplified version of our process and is for illustrative purposes only. Not all loans follow the same format, and some steps are not shown here.

Closing

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.
