Everyday being a Realtor I am always amazed by people who call and want to look at home I've listed or that they have seen on the Internet. The first question I typically ask is have you been Pre-approved yet? In most cases the answer is a resounding No...I'll do that if I find a house I like.
Wow! That's like going skiing down the Expert Trail when you're a Beginner.
Here's what should happen. This is what happens when you get pre-approved by a lender ahead of time.
Congratulations! Here is your check for $500,000!
It's safe to begin searching for a house. When you and your Realtor have selected your home of choice,please have your Realtor call me with all the details of the property. I will then fax a Lender Letter to your Realtor and a Good Faith Estimate of all the costs involved in buying your home of choice.
Till then, please see the attached Good Faith Estimates based on the scenario's we discussed on the phone. If you have any questions about the loan process and or rates please don't hesitate to call me.
Have fun house hunting!
