Many people are confused when it comes to Starting the Home Buying Process, but why is that? We find that people just get excited about finding a home and we completely understand, what's not to get excited about finding that place to raise your family, to invite friends over for a backyard BBQ. As you're dreaming about these things you need to realize that finding the home is often not the first step in the mortgage process, in fact, it's the 3rd step of the process.
The first step of the home loan process would be to find a local mortgage lender. As great as the internet lenders make their rates sound, it's just better to find someone you can call on the phone and hear the same voices everytime you call. The second step in the home loan process is ton get pre-approved with your local lender, then finally you can go to the exciting step of finding that dream home with your mortgage preapproval in hand!
