Surely, you remember being a child at an amusement park when after having stood in line with your friends and family, waiting to get on a terrific ride, you discovered the sign that read, “you must be this tall to ride.”
Not only was it disappointing, it was slightly embarrassing. You never want to go through that again.
A remarkably similar situation occurs when people are buying a home. After finding the right home and negotiating the contract, they find out that they don’t measure up financially. It’s not something that anyone wants to go through if they have a choice.
Regardless of what you think you know, if you’re buying a home with a loan, you need to physically visit with a trusted mortgage professional before you get serious.
- You’ll find out your credit score which will directly affect the mortgage rate you’ll pay.
- You might discover blemishes on your credit that possibly can be corrected.
- You’ll even get a pre-approval letter that you can submit with an offer which could dramatically affect your negotiations in the current competitive market.
Some rides don’t turn out to be as good as you thought they were going to be. A person certainly doesn’t want that disappointment with a lender.
