We want to buy a home in Calif but live in Omaha. Do we initiate mortgage pre-approval in NE or CA? Any bank recommendations?

Asked by Dogmom, Omaha, NE Wed Apr 20, 2011

The home in Calif will be our primary residence but is not contingent on the sale of our Omaha home. The purchase of Calif home needs to be completed before we can put Omaha house up for sale, so, aside from a househunting trip to Concord, CA, area, we have to handle all of mortgage financing from Omaha.

When you purchase, you'll need an exceptional home inspector!!

I would suggest here in Nebraska and to look around for the best rates. I have a couple of loan officers who would love to speak with you. Also, I am happy to assist with the sale of your home. Feel free to contact me at 402-540-3811.

I would suggest Bank of the West. I own a home in Omaha & purchased a 2nd home in California. They handled the sale very well & even had the closing done at my home!
