  • Determine Your Needs Is this home for you and your family or is it an investment property? Do you want to be close to work, public transportation, a particular school or in an area where your friends live? Do you want a big yard or would you prefer a condominium or a home in a planned community where your maintenance responsibilities are less? How many bedrooms and baths will it take to meet your needs? Do you want a single story or multi-story home? By discussing your desires with your Realtor© the search for your new home will be a lot easier.
  • Get pre-approved. Do you already know how much home you can afford? Do you have a monthly housing budget in mind? On the Mortgage Information tab you will find a list of lenders that I have worked with. I like to use them because they get the job done. Speak to one or more of them to get pre-approved. Most sellers will not even review your offer unless you are pre-approved with a reputable lender.
