Intro to Assets

What are assets?

Assets are items you own that have a monetary value. They are usually grouped into three categories: cash, cash equivalents, and property. We ask you for these because the lender needs to verify that the assets you have are traceable, real, and qualify you for the loan you are applying for. Based on the assets you submit to us, we can verify that you are able to pay your closing costs and down payment. 

Types of assets we are looking for include bank statements, earnest money deposits, funds from prior home sales, retirement funds, etc. If you’d like to explore more about what assets are, check out our other articles in this section!
