The One-on-One Process

From the start, PAHO/WHO FCU Mortgage Loan Originator, Mark Isquith (NMLS #927163) and his team will meet with you to discuss your options and goals, and help you make a plan for achieving home ownership. Here’s the process:

  1. Share Your Dreams: You’ll find out how much home you can afford. The Pre-approval letter is essentially your home buying budget.
  2. Explore Your Options: You’ll see how different mortgage options can help you qualify based on your unique needs. Options include a lower down payment, the opportunity to pay less points, a new 5/5 Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) that only adjusts every 5 years over the life of the loan unlike the standard 5/1 ARM, and a 15/15 Home Loan with the longest fixed term of any ARM out there (15 years) and only one rate adjustment over the entire life of the loan. Plus, we have a first-time homebuyer program with a 3% down payment and a $750 credit at closing.
  3. Start Shopping: Mark and his team will encourage you to use HomeAdvantage™, where you’ll meet a qualified agent who knows the area where you want to buy a home. Plus, HomeAdvantage™ helps you earn a rebate, whether you’re buying or selling.
  4. Understand the Costs: Mark and his team will walk you through all of the costs of the home, including taxes and other fees found in the formal loan disclosure.
  5. Close Your Loan: Once all the paperwork is in and approved, you’ll schedule the closing (where you’ll sign all the loan documents and make your down payment). A Credit Union representative will be at your closing (in the Washington DC metro area) to ensure everything goes smoothly.
  6. Get your keys and move into your new home!

Closing in 30 Days

Mark and his team do everything they can to get every loan processed and closed in 30 days or less. Up to 45 days with some refinance loans.
