Should I get pre-approved?

Buying a home is a major purchase. You’re bound to experience uncertainty and may worry about qualifying for a mortgage or finding yourself in a bidding war. A pre-approval helps simplify the process and lets you know how much you can borrow with minimal risk. Understand the pre-approval process before you start.

How much do I qualify for?

When starting your home search, one of the first steps is understanding how much you can afford. Being able to calculate how much you are able to borrow will assist in setting your budget. And we have a tool that considers the various factors involved.

Home inspection

Before finalizing the purchase of a new home, you may want to have a home inspection done. You will have an opportunity to determine the true value of the home and discover if there could be issues or concerns you will need to have fixed after purchase? In addition, some lenders won’t offer financing without one.

Homeowner insurance

Having homeowners insurance protects your home and possessions from damage or theft. And may also help cover living expenses if you do have to temporarily leave your home. 

Title Insurance

The title is the legal name of the ownership of a property. Typically you purchase title insurance when you buy a house and can protect you from issues that may prevent you from being able to sell, lease or mortgage your home.

Moving resources

Moving, whether it is across town or across the country, can be one of the most daunting tasks you and your family undertake. You can make it more manageable by following some helpful tips and solutions.
