How Do I Get a Mortgage is a great question to ask when you're thinking about becoming a home owner, everyone needs to know where to start and finding out how you begin the home loan process is the best place to start. Finding a local Mortgage Lender. This is quite possible the most important part of getting started.  As you proceed onward in the mortgage process you're going to need to provide a bunch of financial documents and I don't know about you but providing those to someone who is a complete stranger to me seems a bit sketchy.  If you choose a local lender in your area, (if you're in Lee's Summit, MO you can choose us: KC Loan Tips!)
