Finding the right lender and being sure you are as informed as you can be about the home buying process is important. Getting Pre-Approved is the first (and very important) step in buying a home.
First, being pre-approved gives you an exact amount that you can afford. It's important to be looking at homes in your price point so meeting with a lender will ensure you are looking at homes you can afford. Then, when you fall in love with a home, you will know you can afford it and act quickly to MAKE IT YOURS!
Second, when you find the home you want you can ACT FAST!
Third, the seller will know you are serious when they see your pre-approval letter along with your offer to purchase.
Below are a few documents that will help you better understand the lending process and some of the programs out there for you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Jodi Teige I am happy to help get you started!
