Come on up to Round Rock - we have plenty of great homes! And you are still close in to everything.

Yup. But bring your "A" game and your checkbook. They go fast and buyers are more aggressive than a flock of 8 year-olds at a pinata party.

Are you shopping for a Home before you shop for a Mortgage? Buying a home can be a momentous decision, and the process can be very confusing for first-time homebuyers & even season veterans who don’t know what to expect as laws and regulations have changed the home buying process. I can guide you thru the entire process of buying a home and make it less daunting, and scary. By shopping for a Mortgage before you shop for a home. Even if your credit history shows some bumps and bruises, don’t despair. Many people who thought they may not be eligible for home loans have found out to the contrary, and even received favorable terms. Some home sellers will not go into a contract to sell unless a buyer is either pre-qualified or pre-approved by a mortgage lender. Being pre-qualified or pre-approved means that as a buyer, you have started the process of securing a loan to buy your new home. Be careful, though, because there is a big difference between being qualified and being approved.

Pre-qualification means that you have spoken to a mortgage lender, and have provided a summation of your financial situation, including salary, assets, and debts. The lender has reviewed the numbers and “pre-qualified” you for a loan based on the information you have provided. This pre-qualification is not a guarantee of funding, and you may or may not be able to secure funding once you submit your actual mortgage application. If you only talk to a lender over the phone, and do not submit any actual documents, you’ll likely be pre-qualified.

Pre-approval means that you have processed an application with your lender, and provided them with documents for verification of income, assets, and liabilities (or debts). Pre-approved loans are ready to go, and are usually only pending the approval of the home you wish to purchase. Many sellers of existing homes insist that a buyer be pre-approved before accepting their offer, because with pre-approved buyers there is no waiting period, and they know that the buyer will be able to come through with the funds for purchase. In contrast, builders selling new homes are happy to work with buyers without forcing them to go through this pre-approval process. If you are already working with a lender, don’t be shy to give me call so I can price the same mortgage for you with less cost. What do you have to loose but your money?
