Sr. Loan Officer Branch Manager, NMLS ID: 504917
(not univeral; different States and different Couties do things differently,) but:
You will need to bring CASH,
You probably won't get to Preview,
You probably won't get to do Inspections,
You probably won't know if there are any LIENS.
You should go into this with wide open eyes.
Please investigate, and/or, involve a Realtor.
