I agree with everyone here. Get preapproved first. Tough to write an offer without that preapproval letter.
Let me know if I can help you out in that department - I'm a direct depository lender (ie, brick and mortar bank)
Your first step will be a loan pre-approval. Then you can choose a Realtor. And finally you will be able to begin your search for a new home. best of luck!
With regard to hiring an agent. Yes, this is important and don't fool yourself into thinking that you do not need one because you can view homes on the internet. Start interviewing agents but let them know you are working the approval issue. The agent can keep their eyes open for properties that fit your criteria. Homes you see today on the market may not be available by the time you get your financing settled. You want to be ready to write a contract if you find that great home.
