After you apply for a loan...do this immediately
Collect your income documents because you will need them right away:
Every lender requires documents as part of the process of approving a mortgage loan. Here are documents you’re generally required to provide:
· W-2 Tax returns — or business tax returns if you're self-employed — for the last two or three years for every person signing the loan.
· One to Two pay stubs for each person signing the loan.
· Two to four months of bank or credit union statements for both checking and savings accounts.
· Lender, loan number, and amount owed on installment loans, such as student loans and car loans.
· Your most recent 401(k) or other retirement account statement.
· Addresses where you’ve lived for the last five to seven years, with names of landlords if appropriate.
Other common docs include:
· Account numbers of all your credit cards and the amounts for any outstanding balances.
· Brokerage account statements for two to four months, as well as a list of any other major assets of value, such as a boat, RV, or stocks or bonds not held in a brokerage account.
· Documentation to verify additional income, such as child support or a pension.
Now if you want to apply for local grants, you must complete..
a 6-8 hour home buyer education workshop

NOTE: You may attend workshops for both Baltimore City or Baltimore County, if you want to be eligible for grants in both jurisdictions.
