Gail Gladsto…, Real Estate Pro in 11743
Gail Gladstone answered:
When should we try to get pre-approved for a mortgage? When we have secured the down payment?? We only have $15,000 right now. Do we really need 20%?

Pre approval (NOT prequal) should be the very first thing you do...before all else.

Only then will you know what you will realistically be able to handle.
