We do the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.

There are four main steps involved in getting a loan.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

A couple of factors determine this amount. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: complete a pre-qualification

This is where the rubber meets the road and Norcal Capital Group, Inc can really save you money. You will give us info on your employment, your assets, and residence history.

We'll go over this information and provide a pre-qualification letter. Handle it with care — it can be a great tool when you make your offer! With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout!

Step four: funding
