You wouldn't be looking up loan information if it were possible to get a mortgage loan in one day by filling out a simple application. But Churchill Mortgage Company does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four important steps involved in getting a mortgage loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. 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: complete a pre-qualification

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will give us information on your current job, assets, and residence history. You'll supply your employment, asset, and residence history information. We will pull get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission. We'll review all this info then will give you a letter of pre-qualification.

We'll work with this company to make sure the papers your lender will require are in order, and you'll probably}likely sign everything at their officeWe do all the work to work with with this company to set your date to close.
