Where do I start?

Before starting the fun of looking at homes for sale, it is helpful to get pre-approved for financing. Visit the get pre-approved page for a list of lenders I personally recommend, or choose someone with whom you have worked before and have had a good experience.  After securing your pre-approval, you can start your home search in a price range that’s comfortable for you, prepared to act when you find the house you on which want to write an offer.
