Most realtors require a pre-qualification form from your lender to begin showing properties, but the benefit to you is personal guidance from our mortgage professionals on selecting your best price range, based on the financial information you provide. This step can be completed online or over the phone with one of our mortgage professionals, and does not include credit verification.

Follow these tips for the best results:

  • Understand your current financial standing (i.e. credit scores, debits, and assets).
  • Calculate the amount you have for a down payment.
  • Determine how long you plan to stay in the home.
  • Do not misrepresent the facts in the pre-qualification process. It could derail your home buying process in the income to debit ration verification step.

Run your own preliminary calculations using our special tools or call 520-794-8341 to schedule your free pre-qualification meeting today.


You’ll need the following information and documents to complete your mortgage application. Please plan to bring these items, for everyone who will be named on the mortgage, to your appointment with a mortgage representative:

  • Proof of address for your current residence, as well as the previous two years.
  • Social Security numbers.
  • Employment history, with names, addresses, and phone numbers of current employer, as well as for the previous two years.
  • Bank and account information, including current balances.
  • Investment information, including if you currently own another home or property. The lender will need to know that address, current market value, and the amount owed on an existing mortgage.
  • Your current debt, including the name of creditors, account numbers, current balances and monthly payment amount.
  • Tax returns for the last five years.


You’ve been pre-qualified and now you’ve found the home you want to buy – make it official. Applying for a loan can be done in person or  online here.


Once the income to debit ratio has been verified, Hughes Federal Credit Union will issue approval on your loan request and evaluate the property you are interested in purchasing.


The paperwork has been completed and you are ready to move forward with closing on your new home!
