Before you start house hunting, you need to determine how much house you can afford, which will entail getting preapproved for a home loan. A real estate agent can help you find a mortgage broker to begin the process. While getting preapproved is a more in-depth process, a preapproval letter lets both real estate agents and sellers know that you’re a serious shopper who means business.
Getting preapproved requires that the lender review your finances, confirming pay stubs, tax records, credit accounts, bank statements and sometimes more. The preapproval amount will not only be a reliable estimate of what you can afford, but your preapproval also indicates that a lender is willing to do business with you, pending the purchase price, market appraisal and the underwriting process.
You can also get prequalified for a loan, which means that a lender has taken some information from you, and made a tentative decision without necessarily verifying any of the information. Prequalification provides you with a quick estimate of the amount you can afford, but is not considered as reliable as preapproval.
We can recommend a number of mortgage brokers that I'm willing to put you in contact with — this lender will be someone they have done business with in the past, and feel comfortable recommending. However, if you decide to do a little comparison shopping and look for a lender on your own, here are a few important questions to ask.
Where you buy not only affects the home’s current and future value, but it also affects your lifestyle. Your agent will be able to conduct a more targeted home search if you outline your preferences in neighborhoods and nearby amenities. Here’s a checklist of items you should consider and communicate to your chosen real estate agent.
