You wouldn't be visiting our site if it were possible to complete a simple application and receive a great loan funded the same day. But Hawk Mortgage Group does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

Getting a mortgage loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.
