Crane Chicago Realty Group™ is associated with Hartford Financial Services™, an Illinois licensed mortgage broker, which offers a full line of competitive financial mortgage products from a large number of national and local lenders.  Buyers are well served by the convenience of a one stop shop offering mortgage products that are tailored to their individual requirements.  Sellers are confident in accepting a contract from a buyer who has a pre-approved mortgage.


A first step in finding a new home is to determine how much home you can afford.  Our loan officer will be able to help you determine how much of a mortgage you will qualify for and will review the different mortgage products with you to find the right mortgage for you.   You need the following items to obtain a pre-approved mortgage:

  • Paystubs covering the most recent 30 days
  • The most recent two year federal tax returns
    including W-2’s
  • Most recent 3 months of bank statements for checking and savings accounts
  • Most current quarter statements from investment
    and stocks, retirement accounts and mutual funds
Pre-approval requires that the lender verify your financial information, it will serve as a commitment to lend a specified amount based on that information. A pre-approval is looked upon as being very favorable to a seller when considering you offer to purchase their home.  As a buyer you can be assured that you will qualify for the loan you need to complete your transaction.
