If you are considering purchasing a home, it will be to your advantage to work with a local lender. There are several reasons for choosing a local lender:
- very importantly, a local lender will be available to answer questions and concerns about the offer and the buyer, at the time the sellers and the listing agent are reviewing the offer. This factor alone is of paramount importance, and will make or break a decision in your favor,
- it is usually easier to reach someone who is local and whom your agent knows, and doing business "in person" is still the best for these important steps in your life,
- in any environment, competitive or not, it will be in your favor if the listing agent knows the lender too, and their track record.
If you are thinking of a purchase I can give you names of proven local lenders. This is definitely the first step in your journey and I can help with it.
