But South County Mortgage does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four primary steps involved in getting a loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the rubber meets the road and you save the most money. You will give us info on your employment, your assets, and your residence history. You'll give us information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will get your credit report and score (with your permission. When we review all this information we will give you a letter of pre-qualification. Your real estate agent will use the pre-qual (as they may call it) to make the best offer on the home you choose.
