Mortgage Information

The easiest way to buy a home is to have a pre-approved loan before you start looking.  This is very different from a pre-qualification letters, which merely states that you may get the loan.  You want to have the money in hand.   This not only sets your price range, but also gives you the upper-hand when it comes to striking a deal.
     Your objective as a home buyer is find the best home at most affordable price.  With a pre-approved loan, you will have a much better chance of buying the best home.  In many instances, a seller will forgo the highest offer in exchange for a buyer with an approved loan.  Why agonize through the loan application process waiting for a buyer to get approved or denied, when you have a buyer who is ready buy.
     You may want to use the Mortgage Calculator as starting point.
     On a final note, remember that lenders will give you the final loan approval only after a home appraisal.  This is in both the buyer's and the lender's best interest.
