How are you going to purchase your new home?
The very next step to buying a home is to get pre-qualified for a loan. This step can often be overwhelming, but it shouldn't be. We can explain the importance of having an excellent, local lender on your side. One phone call to one of our preferred lenders will get you started. The loan officer will ask you questions about your income, financial accounts, employment status, and will gather some personal information so that your credit history can be reviewed. He/she will then provide you with the different loan programs available and what is required by each. During this process you will get an idea of the price range you can afford and if there is anything you need to do before writing an offer.
