All home buyers that plan to use mortgage financing should obtain pre-approval for financing as the first step in the purchase process. Investors should also follow this advice since investor financing is still difficult for many because of the lender limits on the number of financed properties.  Please ask us for a referral to a loan officer if you do not have an existing relationship with a mortgage lender.
