Finding a Mortgage Lender
The home buying process can be somewhat intimidating but your realtor will guide you smoothly through the process. Determine what your priorities are. What is your desired neighborhood or area, what are your must-haves?
Before starting your home search, check your credit score. Your mortgage lender will let you know how much you qualify for. This is important so you will know how much you can afford and what to look for. It is important to be pre-approved for a loan before looking at homes. Otherwise, in today's market the home you want will sell before you have time to get pre-approved.
