Applying for a mortgage doesn't have to be a hassle.

Especially if you're prepared. You'll save a good deal of time (and stress) by having the following in your hands when you apply for a home loan:

  1. Social Security numbers for both you and your spouse, if you're both applying for the loan;
  2. Copies of your checking and savings account statements for the past six months;
  3. Evidence of any other assets like stocks or bonds;
  4. A recent paycheck stub detailing your earnings. If you're self-employed, you will likely have to bring along copies of past income tax statements (see below);
  5. A list of all credit card accounts and the approximate monthly amounts owed on each;
  6. A list of account numbers and balances due on outstanding loans, such as car loans;
  7. Copies of your last two years' income tax statements. Self-employed individuals may be required to show statements from further back; and
  8. The name and address of someone who can verify your employment.

Ask your lender what other information is required before you sit down to do the paperwork.
