Buying a home is the one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime. Getting pre-qualified from one of the nation’s top rated mortgage companies will inform your Realtor and the home seller that you are a qualified and a serious buyer. Many sellers and Realtors also prefer a local company vs. an online lending source. You can rest easy knowing you are working with a company that is one of the highest rated companies in the industry.
