At Amax Lending, we want you to understand the very important steps toward home ownership and have prepared a step-by-step guide. This guide does not replace our one-on-one customer service that we take great pride in, but it will give you an idea of how we navigate from day one to closing day.
Getting Pre-Approved is a must to determine how much you can borrow, the programs for which you qualify and an estimate of your monthly payment.
To get started, click APPLY NOW or reach out to one of experienced Todd Rubick. Once Amax Lending and Todd Rubick determines you are eligible, they will issue a Pre-Approval Letter.
