While you can start now, it will help you get a basis of what you can buy or afford.
It helps you also narrow the Area / Schools / Local etc. etc.
Getting pre qualed now maybe mute as Buyers and Sellers want to see a letter
that is generally less than 60 days old.
You can always get prequalified to see where you stand financially, but more than likely you will need to be qualified closer to your purchase date. If you need additional help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
