As you begin your shopping experience, one of your first steps should be to contact a Realtor and to contact a lender for your mortgage. When you are selecting your agent, you are probably selecting someone that is familiar with the area in which you are buying, correct? The same should apply to a lender.
Often, clients will come to us with an agent in which a family member referred them to, an online lender they saw on TV or online, or someone from their hometown. Just like when you are selecting an agent, you should select a lender that lives and breathes the market that you are purchasing in.
In today's competitive market, you have a leg up 9 times out of 10 when submitting an offer with a local lender pre-approval. Listing Realtors and sellers place confidence knowing they can reach out to a REAL person, or even stop in their office if need be.
