Be the best buyer you can be!

The importance of speaking with a mortgage rep or broker, and getting a pre-approval cannot be stressed enough.

In fact, it should be one on the 1st things you do, if not the very 1st thing.  This is assuming that you have a general Idea on where you want to buy.  Your desired location’s property taxes are a factor when it comes to pre-approvals.

I do meet buyers every now and then that want to find their house first, then get a pre-approval. This usually does not work out. Learning that a house that you like is not in your price range can be demotivating and delay you in accomplishing what you want. 

Even worse is finding a house, getting pre-approved for the price but since you needed a day or two to get everything together another buyer submitted an offer and it was accepted.

A pre-approval cost you nothing. 

What you get in return is tremendous.

Ultimately you are a better buyer, an educated buyer.

Buying a house is not an easy feat.  Getting a pre-approval first or early is the best way to set you up for success.
