Spilling the financial beans

Applying for a mortgage loan involves a lot of rummaging and running around, as I'm sure anyone who's been through the process knows very well.

We opted to do our mortgage through E-Loan. So far the people I've been speaking to have been very friendly, helpful and provide most everything that needs signing electronically. And there are forms up the wazoo. Of course the signing thing still needs to be done on the dead-tree version, which means faxing it back to them. We're in the processing and approval stage now, so there's been a lot of paperwork that needs to be printed and signed. Hopefully everything goes through smoothly.
