Learn About Mortgage Paperwork

If you’re just starting to look for a home, you may be a little confused by the paperwork involved with getting a mortgage. Wouldn’t it be great if someone could give you a line-by-line explanation of the forms you’ll be dealing with during the home-buying process?

We thought so too. That’s why we’ve created annotated versions of some common mortgage documents. Specifically, we’ve marked up the Good Faith Estimate and HUD-1, as well as a standard loan application.

We’ve collected these documents here. Just pick the document you want to review and click the yellow info-points to bring up more information about every item.

These interactive loan documents are just a small part of our online Home Buying Guide. We’re adding several new sections to the guide in the next couple of weeks; we’ll let you know when it all goes live.
