Mortgage Advice

If you’re looking for a home in the Chicagoland area, consider contacting a lender.  Getting your financing lined up early will help things go smoothly.  For instance, it will show home sellers how serious you are.  In addition, here are some advantages from on why you should get a mortgage pre-approval.

  • Prove your credibility to home sellers
  • Save time by looking at the right homes
  • Gain confidence and avoid disillusionment
  • Increase your bargaining and similarly negotiating power
  • After that, enjoy a faster closing period

One more tip we can offer, go with a local lender.  Firstly, slick big name or online lenders don’t save you that much.  If that were the case, they wouldn’t be able to afford all those commercials. Secondly, you want a local lender that you can reach out to with questions.  In conclusion, sitting at a closing table trying to get a hold of some online lender can be a nightmare – we’ve seen it.
