f you’re on the hunt for a new home, getting pre-approved is an important step. While you may have been pre-qualified from a lender earlier in the process, a pre-approval is more definitive and a bit more involved. Not only does it give you hard numbers to plug into your budget, but it also proves to a seller you’re serious and ready to buy. A pre-approval is necessary, but wait until you’re sure you’re ready to buy since, depending on your lender, a pre-approval is only valid for 30-90 days. If you’re looking to buy, give me a call. I’d love to help you find the perfect home.
