The other day I was asked by a client, where could he search on line for ALL currently listed homes for sale.  One of the Real Estate sites I mentioned was TRULIA Real Estate Search (click)

Get Pre-Approved First – Then Go House Hunting!

Most buyers tend to start their house hunting on-line through sites like REALTOR.COM, TRULIAand many other sites.  Then, they may contact a Realtor, possibly the listing agent to an interesting home they’ve spotted on line.

The next thing they know, they’re scheduling an appointment to view homes and one day, it happens…

They find “the one” – their dream home,  their casa or castle.  They begin to picture themselves, their furniture and belongings in the home.  They may even start picking out paint colors and think of where to place the furniture – getting more and more wrapped up in becoming a homeowner.

Then, they contact a mortgage broker – since their offer, after negotiating, was accepted – Yeah! Or maybe not.  What if that house’s monthly payment isn’t affordable – what if their credit scores have changed – what if they need a bigger down payment?  These are all questions that could sometimes be answered with a simple phone call.

With all the changes in the Mortgage Industry, contacting a mortgage broker or lender is crucial.  It will save you much dissappointment and give you peace of mind while shopping for your first or next home.
