You have the first two steps covered it sounds like. Getting approved and Finding a Home. Next is to make sure the home is available and then negotiating an offer. I would suggest having a Realtor look at the property with you to help you negotiate a good price.
As an added bonus unlike many Realtors I will not only guide you through the process but I will give you 20% of my commission back cash after closing. We could get an offer in today if the home is still available. Please call me at 214-682-0598
