The mortgage process

The very first step of the home-buying process is to get a pre-approval letter from a lender stating how much you are qualified for. Ask your potential lenders questions to ensure they are a good fit for you, and don't hesitate to speak with more than one lender.

Don't understand something your lender says? Stop and ask for clarification. This is your home-buying journey, and you deserve to understand the process every step of the way.

A pre-approval is typically valid for 30-90 days, so while you can start talking to lenders, you'll want to wait to get that pre-approval letter when you're ready to buy.

Not sure what lenders to speak with? Talk to your local realtor, who can guide you to reputable and knowledgeable lenders.

Searching strategy

Searching Strategy:  Before we hop into the home search, it is important we create a “Needs” list and a “Wants” list. This will help us focus on the essential things in your future home.

  • Enough square footage for you and your family
  • Sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms
  • Proximity to work and school
  • Your preferred area
  • Grassy yard for children’s or pet’s play area

Understanding your wants and needs brings focus into the search process. Speak with your trusted realtor to set you up with automatic listing notifications and guide you to legitimate websites that give you current listing information.

We are preparing an offer!

So you think you've found "the one," and you're ready to put in an irresistible offer to sellers. Let's talk about making an offer that stands out.

  • Include a pre-approval letter showing you're serious, qualified, and ready to purchase.
  • Include contingencies that are a must, and when possible, do due diligence ahead of time.
  • Keep your dates flexible and let the seller know it.
  • Have deposit funds ready to go.
