What we offer

A surprisingly joyful experience—exactly how getting a home loan should be.

Great rates

Great rates

We believe great service should include great value.

It’s why we offer great rates and we don’t charge lender fees. Kind of a no brainer. And if you find a better rate, we’ll match it. We call that Price Match, but you can go ahead and call it “money in my pocket.”

How We Do It

What is the Tomo Price Match?

Put simply, it’s our commitment to getting you a great rate. If you find a better deal, we’ll match it, guaranteed.

What do I need to qualify for Price Match?

Give us a valid, comparable Loan Estimate doc, dated within one business day of submission to Tomo, with the lender info. That’s it.

Why are the rates so low?

We’ve simplified the home financing process to make it easier and more cost-efficient. We pass those savings back to you. Bottom line, you save time and money.

What are lender fees?

Lender fees are also sometimes called origination fees, processing fees, mystery fees, fees fees, and generally murky stuff designed to be confusing. Luckily we don’t charge any of them.

Tomo pre-approval

Tomo pre-approval

Shop for your new home with confidence.

Buying a home is a big deal. With a Tomo pre-approval you know what you can afford and can be confident you're putting your best foot forward when you're ready to make an offer. In a hot market? We can underwrite your pre-approval to further strengthen your offer.

How We Do It

What types of pre-approval does Tomo offer?

Tomo offers both a verified and underwritten pre-approval.

What is a verified pre-approval?

A verified pre-approval provides a comprehensive and accurate assessment of your finances, without requiring a hard credit check, to show you and potential sellers what you can afford. We'll verify your credit score, income, debt, and real estate ownership, and then get back to you within 3 business hours.

What is an underwritten pre-approval?

An underwritten pre-approval provides the most complete assessment of your finances. Your information and eligibility are reviewed and confirmed by an underwriter. This further validates your pre-approval and can strengthen your offer with potential sellers. To underwrite your information, a hard credit check is required.

How will getting a pre-approval affect my credit?

A verified pre-approval will not affect your credit, as it requires only a soft credit check. Only an underwritten pre-approval requires a hard credit check. Typically, hard credit checks impact your credit by no more than 5 points, or potentially not at all if done within 45 days of another hard inquiry by a mortgage lender. Tomo will always ask for your permission before checking your credit.

Does my pre-approval letter expire?

Tomo pre-approval letters are valid for up to 6 months, so there’s no rush to find the right home.

Close on time

Close on time

No delays. No worries. Because that’s how it should be.

We’ve streamlined the mortgage process so critical steps happen earlier and you move in on time—it’s something we take very seriously. How serious? To date we’ve closed 98% of our loans on time compared to an industry average of just 40%. Get your calendar and a marker—this is happening.

How We Do It

Why is closing on time important?

In home buying, there’s no time for closing delays. They can send a deal off track and even cause a seller to back out. Our near-perfect on-time closing record assures both you and the seller that the deal will get done, so you can move in on time.

How do you know we’re serious about it?

Besides our record of closing 98% of our loans on time (compared to the industry average of just 40%), our loan team is extremely communicative and clear about what needs to happen so you can get in your home. We’ll be there to help you through everything—step by step—and if we need to put in some extra hustle on the back end to get you across the finish line to your new home on time, well, that’s just what we’ll do.

How do we do it?

Our expertise is in purchase loans—it is all we do. We know where delays typically happen and we’ve moved those critical steps earlier in the process to keep things moving towards your on-time closing.
