First things first, get Pre-Approved!
An important ingredient in a successful home search is setting the budget. You don’t want to fall in love with a property only to find out it’s outside your price range!
That’s why we recommend getting a Mortgage Pre-Approval. This is a document from Thomas stating how much of a mortgage the lender is willing to give you. There are two advantages to getting this pre-approval:
- It gives you the peace-of-mind of knowing the homes you view on the market are within your budget.
- It’s required to send with an offer, so you are ready to go when you find the perfect one.
You can arrange for a Mortgage Pre-Approval with your bank or other lender, or by working with a good mortgage broker. We’re well-connected in the local real estate scene, so if you want us to recommend a reputable broker or lender, we highly recommend Thomas Drinkwater, you’ll thank us!
