Purchasing a home
I always suggest reaching out to a lender prior to viewing homes. This will save you a lot of hassle in the long run and let you and me (Your Realtor) know which homes will fit your budget.
Here is a list of local lenders I recommend. I always recommend using a local lender as opposed to a big commercial lender due to relationships with local appraisers. It will work in your favor, trust me.
