Establish the Budget

One of the first thing we have our clients do when staring the home search is get pre-approved by a lender. 

Although many buyers shy away from doing this up-front, getting pre-approved early in your home search can be vital to your success. We do this to establish a baseline for your purchasing power and look for any areas that can be easily improved. This also ensures we are looking within your spending budget! We work closely with a number of lenders that can perform and compete in today’s market.
