Loan Preparation

To help you prepare for your loan application process, here is an overview of the types of documents and information you will need to provide to our Premiere Financial team.

Anything you submit over our website is 100 percent, fully secure. And we never, ever share it with anyone except by permission. When you are giving us information you want us to use to get you the best loan, we use that information to tell mortgage lenders about you and convince them to loan you money.

In turn, those mortgage lenders are bound by federal law to keep your information secure.
