Financing is the most important aspect of a Real Estate purchase. Are you going to pay cash, or are you going to finance? If you need to finance your purchase, you need to contact a qualified mortgage broker right away. Your own bank or credit union is a good place to start.
Before you even start looking at homes, make sure to get pre-qualified for a loan. This will help you, and your Realtor, stay within your budget. It will show the seller that you are a qualified buyer. You will be armed with the confidence of knowing that you are making an educated financial decision.
Sounds pretty good doesn't it? Make sure to check with your Realtor before talking to a mortgage broker. They can give you some tips on what information or programs to ask about. See the contacts on the left of this page. They will be happy to talk to you about mortgage information.
