Once you're ready to buy a home, we'll walk you through the entire process.

Before you start your home search, it's a good idea to get pre-qualified. This will give you a stronger position when you're ready to make an offer on your dream home. We will review your financial situation to ensure you're fully prepared to purchase your new home.

Loan Application
Once you've found your dream home, and your offer is accepted, your Busey Mortgage lender will guide you through the process. We will assist you in completing your loan application, helping you choose the right product that suits your financial needs and collecting all the required documentation.

Application Disclosures
To ensure that you fully understand the terms of the loan you have applied for, we will send you a set of disclosures within three days of your application. The disclosures will contain all the relevant terms and conditions of your loan request. It is important that you sign and return the disclosures in a timely manner so that we can proceed with your loan request.

Application Processing
Once we receive your completed application and required documentation, your dedicated Loan Processor will order third-party services such as property appraisal and verification of your financial information. They will then prepare your loan request for review by our Underwriting team.

The last stage of your loan request is for our underwriting team to review your financial information and property details. Upon review and acceptance, a loan approval/commitment will be issued.

After your loan is approved, a Closing will be scheduled. The closing will take place at a title company or attorney's office and will involve a series of disclosures and documents detailing the final terms of your mortgage loan transaction.

Congratulations, your dream home is all yours!
