The first step is to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will give you an idea of how much money you can borrow and what your monthly payments will be. It will also make you a more attractive buyer to sellers.
What's the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval?
Pre-qualification is a preliminary process where a lender reviews your financial information to get an idea of how much money you may be able to borrow. This is a quick and easy process that doesn't require a lot of documentation. A pre-qualification letter is not a guarantee of approval, but it can give you a good starting point when you're looking for a home.
Pre-approval is a more in-depth process where a lender actually approves you for a loan up to a certain amount. This requires more documentation, such as your tax returns, pay stubs, and bank statements. A pre-approval letter is a much stronger offer to a seller than a pre-qualification letter, and it can give you an edge in a competitive market.
How do I get pre-approved for a mortgage?
To get pre-approved for a mortgage, you'll need to contact a lender and provide them with some basic financial information.

One of the EASIEST transactions I've ever worked! Blair Damon made this process so easy and so smooth for both me and my client. She was kind, flexible and extremely responsive! She even got my client clear to close in less than 2 weeks! We were in two different time zones and Blair did not miss a beat. I would recommend her over and over again. If I could give BD mortgage 100 stars, I would and they certainly deserve it. Thank you!
All I can say is BD Mortgage Group is the real MVP. I’ve been denied by other lenders prior to coming to BDMG. When I tell you it is important to have a knowledgeable loan officer that actually knows how to improvise to get things done. She knows the programs in and out. Thank you Blair and your team for making my dreams come true. Would recommend to everyone.
