But Arch Mortgage Corporation does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four primary steps involved in obtaining a mortgage loan.

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? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment amount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.
