For some, getting a mortgage is the most stress-inducing part of the entire home buying process.

You have a lot of decisions to make, a number documents to provide and sign, and you will be racing the clock through the entire process.

But fear not, dear reader, the process doesn’t need to be painful. With a little bit of prep work and the right lender, you can make closing your loan much easier and far less stressful.

At Clara, we’re using technology to make this process more efficient. You can work online and at your own pace. We directly integrate with banks and other financial institutions to reduce the amount of documents you’ll need to provide.

If you need help during the process, your dedicated Loan Specialist is just a text, email, or chat away!
