Previously we went over the process of picking the proper real-estate agent for your home hunting needs so the next step is to determine the best mortgage program. Most people do not have thousands of dollars in savings to buy a home with cash so a mortgage will be necessary. A statistic from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) is that 9-of-10 homebuyers purchase homes through a loan program so it is important to know what loans are available.
First we should probably explain what the term “pre-approval” means. The process begins with you meeting a loan officer, which can help you determine what type of home you can afford. It then continues onto a review of your credit files to ensure they are in good standing. The loan officer will then determine which specific mortgage program is best for you. From there you’ll receive a pre-approval certificate stating your maximum borrowing potential.
