The home buying experience can be an overwhelming experience that can be exhilarating, fun, stressful and exhausting. The process of securing a mortgage, successfully bidding on a home and completing the transaction can be lengthy, complex and involve seemingly endless professionals.

Those professionals may include a buyer’s agent, a loan officer, a home inspector, title company personnel, a city official in charge of occupancy permits, surveyors and more.

Many buyers think of their real estate agent as their “go to” person in the process. And for good reason. The process is about finding and purchasing a home, and skilled real estate agents are adept at finding the right home for the right price for buyers.

But don’t underestimate the value of your loan officer. Many buyers may not realize it, but a loan officer may well be a home buyer’s best ally from start to finish during the buying officer

What do loan officers do?

Your loan officer will work closely with you to:

    • Assess your credit score, income and financial position to determine an appropriate loan amount for you
    •  Identify which type of loan and loan term is best for you
    • Work as the liaison between you and the lender throughout the loan origination process
    • Ensure all paperwork – and in the case of mortgages there is a substantial amount – is completed properly and on time
    •  Catch and correct any misunderstandings, miscommunication, or glitches that may arise throughout the process
