Does Pulling Your Credit Report too Many Times Damage Your FICO Scores?
When looking to purchase a home it sometimes take many offers until you get one that sticks. Along the way many listing agents may ask that you be pre-qualified by their lender. Be careful! The FICO people, whoever they may be, don't care that you are working hard to purchase the best house at the best price. My advice is to make the offer and tell them that once it is accepted you will allow the credit to be run.
