Expert Tips and Answers

1. Get a pre approval letter before you begin looking for a home. This tells the seller you are a serious and qualified buyer.

2. Don’t choose a lender based solely on a lower rate. Compare other costs and fees for closing and the life of the loan.

3.  Ask prospective lenders for a good faith estimate. This will give you a true picture to compare lending offers.

4. When selling your existing home – do not skip the appraisal.
