Ready to get started?

Don’t start the home buying process at an open house. Your first step should be a mortgage pre-approval. By talking with your loan officer, you can determine if you qualify for a loan and how much you can borrow. A pre-approval gives you a leg up when it comes to a competitive and quick moving real estate market – some sellers and agents won’t accept your offer without it!
