Going shopping for a mortgage. It may seem backwards to shop for a mortgage before you shop for the house, but there are several reasons for doing this. Shopping for a mortgage will also help if you can get “pre-approved” for the amount you’d like to borrow. This means the lender has looked over your credit and financial statement and agreed to lend you the money. Sellers like pre-approved buyers because there’s less risk the deal won’t go through. First, you’ll find out how much you can borrow, which has a lot to do with how much house you can buy.

On most accounts, that would be 6 months or more depending on any programs you are intending to apply for. In some cases, it also depends on your country of origin as well. I would need more details in order to be more helpful.

If you are buying it as an investor, where you live does not make a difference as you don’t need to be a resident of the state to get a loan.

Is the real question though how long do you have to live here to get in-state tuition?

It depends on whose definition of "texas resident" you're trying to comply with.

For "in state tuition" the requirement is 12 months.

If you're trying to determine "texas resident" for loan programs or anything else, please contact me.

If you need help with your home loan, please contact me. I have 14 years experience in helping families finance their next home. I am familiar with all loan programs and property scenarios, FHA, VA, USDA ($0 Down), Conventional, Homepath, Short Sales, Bank Owned Foreclosures, etc. I’ll make sure you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision. Customer service and on time closing is top priority. Hope to hear from you soon.
