Get Pre Approved for a Mortgage

With our pre-approval program you'll be certain
your mortgage will be ready to close on time once you find a home.

When should I get Pre Approved?

You should begin the pre-approval process about a week or two before you're ready to start seriously home shopping and potentially making offers to buy. Because we will be documenting your qualifications such as employment, income and assets, pre-approvals are valid for 120 days until needing to be updated. Also, your credit will be run and your application along with verification documents will be reviewed by our underwriters who approve your loan except for property-specific items. Then, once you have found a home, we'll review the sale contract, title work and appraisal then get your loan ready to close quickly.

If you're just researching options for buying a home but are not ready to get pre-approved yet, click here to get Pre Qualified.

Great Service - No Compromises

We started Local Mortgage to bring something different to the mortgage market. For a while now, customers have had to choose between low rates with technology driven companies, generally sacrificing on service or getting typically higher rates from local loan officers that sometimes offer a higher level of service than their online counterparts. Not anymore…


If you want the best rates, great products and the right blend of technology with a human touch during your mortgage process, you are in the right place. When you are ready to buy a home, you will feel at home with Local Mortgage.
