Ask your loan officer for more details.

Step 1:  Complete a Loan Application  

Please go to our "Apply Now" page and fill out a brief questionnaire.  Be sure to complete all fields to the best of your knowledge.  A loan officer may reach out via email so add the domain to your email allowed!

Step 2:  Accept Your Loan Offer

You will receive a LOI from your loan officer for signature to move forward.  At this point, any processing fees, appraisal fees, etc. will be due and are non-refundable.  Your loan officer will cover these in detail with you to make the process as smooth as possible.

Step 3:  Submit Needed Documents

Submit all requested documents to Better Business Lenders, Inc. using the method appropriate for you.  You can scan and email them, send us a link to a dropbox/box account, or fax to 888-348-5194.  If you applied online, you will also be able to upload to your personal loan portal.  Loan processing can begin after all documents are received.

Step 4:  Phone Conference with Processing 

In some cases, if the file is fully submitted during Step 3 you will receive a notice that the file is in processing without having to go through the conference call.  If not, you'll get a call invite to cover your application and complete it for processing.

Step 5:  Go to Closing!

Once the loan is clear to close you will be notified and closing scheduled.  Then, we move on to your next great investment!
