Initial Underwriting

The Underwriter will verify that all information is accurate and authentic.

Conditional Approval

Conditional Approval is granted when the Underwriter approves the loan under certain conditions.

Clear To Close

The Underwriter verifies that all documentation has been provided and all conditions have been met.

Hundreds of 5-star

reviews & happy clients!

“Oh gosh, I NEVER write reviews.. We have been working with HomeVantage for a while now, since the housing market is BOOMING, finding a home is nearly impossible before it has already sold. From the very start, HomeVantage have been wonderful! When I ran into any problem, they were there to help. Any questions, they're there to help. HomeVantage is amazing! I couldn’t imagine how different things would have been if I worked with anyone else. They have made our purchasing a home for the first time a wonderful experience. Now they are stuck with us for life!”
