Once you've found the home you want to buy, you'll need to finalize your financing. You'll need to provide your lender with the following documents:
- A copy of the real estate listing of the property. If the home is still to be built, the mortgage lender will need to see the architect's or builder's plans and details on lot size and location.
- A copy of the offer to purchase or the building contract, if this document has been prepared.
- Documents to confirm employment, income and source of pre-approval.
- If you have a pre-approved mortgage, it's a simple matter of finalizing a few details with your mortgage specialist.
