As a Realtor and Broker for quite a few years, I would not show homes to anyone without some type of pre approval for a loan. In almost all circumstances in Lebanon, if someone is interested in bringing a contract they must have approval letter to go with the offer. If you don't then an offer is not going to be accepted until you get approval which leaves the door open for another offer to come in in the meantime. That just wastes a lot of time for all concerned. I realize that you have your home on the market, but until it is under contract, it does not make you any more qualified than anyone else. You could write a contingency offer showing your home on the market but you should still have a pre qualification letter from a lender.
I highly recommend that you contact a lender and get this done. It does not take very long and most lenders can get a letter out that would be conditional upon you selling your home.... more
