The Application Process
Potential borrowers can complete an application and lock in a rate via AmeriSave’s website, or over the phone or live chat with a licensed loan originator. The great thing about the AmeriSave service is it serves prospective home buyers too.
To begin the process online, you’ll need to fill out a short application form that takes about 3 minutes to complete. This includes details about yourself, where you live, and what type of home you are purchasing/refinancing. Once this information has been submitted, you’ll be presented with multiple, customized rate quotes that you’re pre-qualified for without requiring SSN or a hard credit check in most circumstances.
After receiving your pre-approved rate, you can go ahead and complete the rest of the process online where you will be required to submit a hard credit check. AmeriSave offers the option of securely uploading your documents to the portal and even e-signing them to expedite the process and an AmeriSave loan originator will be assigned to you to help answer any questions and finalize any documentations.

With AmeriSave you get to choose between five different repayment terms: 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 years. You can take a fixed-rate mortgage or an ARM with 5/1, 7/1, or 10/1 options.
