Get a Mortgage Pre-Approval

An important ingredient in a successful home search is knowing how much you can afford. You don’t want to fall in love with a property only to find out it’s outside your price range.

That’s why I recommend getting a Mortgage Pre-Approval. This is a document from your bank or other lender stating how much of a mortgage they are willing to give you. There are two advantages to getting this pre-approval:

  • It gives you the peace-of-mind of knowing you can afford homes you view on the market, and won’t have problems arranging financing.
  • It’s a sign to sellers that you are a serious, prepared buyer – which gives you the edge when making an offer.

I’m well-connected in the local real estate scene, so if you want me to recommend a reputable broker or lender, please review your model real estate agent’s preferred lenders below:
