Melissa, Home Buyer in Houston, TX

Where do I begin to search for lenders?

Asked by Melissa, Houston, TX Thu Apr 11, 2013

I am currently in a rent to own home, I have been there for 1 year and 9 months. I am purchasing this house from a relative and must start the buying process now. My credit score is not great but I have long term (11 years) employment. Where do I begin?

You need to start speaking to loan officers at your local bank, credit unions and mortgage brokers. All specialize in one thing or another and compete against one another to give you the best terms and rates.

Speak to 2 or 3 of them and decided who you would like to use. I have several great lenders that work with 1st time buyers on my web site. Feel free to call any of them, even after hours.…

Hope that helps. Oh, by the way. DO NOT buy a home, even from family, without a Realtor assisting you!! There are many things to consider and a Realtor can guide you through the process.

You can check with me too if you are shopping for lenders. We are mortgage brokers and I can shop your loan with many lenders. We don't charge a broker fee for doing that.
