A very important step in the home-buying process is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage:
This will give us an idea of the price range that you can afford so that we can get you in one of our homes that matches what you want or connect with one of our buyers agents who can go out and find the best deal on a home that is right for you.
Getting pre-qualified will require that you provide a lender with some basic information on your income, assets, and debt. We can arrange to have this done for you at no cost as we work closely with local lenders and can refer one to you. This can be a pretty fast process and can be completed within days.
Another benefit in getting pre-qualified is that it is an expression of your seriousness in purchasing a home and will need to be submitted with our offer, which may be a deciding factor in a situation of competing offers from other not-yet qualified buyers on your dream home.
