This is a question I hear from a lot of first-time buyers, so I thought it would be helpful to share here!

The first step on your hunt for a new home should always be getting pre-approved for a loan. Here’s why.

Pre-approval does two important things. First, it lets you know your budget. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worked with buyers who were pre-approved for an amount lower than they anticipated. It’s better to find that out before you start looking at homes.

It also allows you to move quickly, which is so important, especially in this market. When you’re pre-approved, you can go from viewing to making an offer right away. That can mean the difference between landing that dream home or watching it slip away.
