Carolina One Real Estate
Summerville is a great place to live! I myself relocated from Goose Creek to Summerville and love it! Getting pre-approved is your first step and while the lender in Ohio most likely could help out, most people find it more comfortable dealing with a local reputable lender. You get face to face one on one attention rather than dealing over the phone mon-fri. I can refer a fantastic lender who has been doing VA loans for 20+ years. Her name is Julia Chism and she is with Shelter Mortgage. Her phone number is (843) 330-7575 and you can apply directly on her website http://www.lowcountrymortgages.com. I'd love the opportunity to earn you business and help you find a great home in the Summerville area. Let me know if I can help you!
If you have a Preferred Lender in Ohio..... that has a Mortgage License in South Carolina..... they should be willing to work with you. HOWEVER..... My recommendation is to work with a Real Estate/Mortgage team in the Summerville/Goose Creek area.
It makes for better communication and team work between all the necessary entities to identify, contract and close your Lowcountry Home.
If I can be of assistance, please let me know.
Have A Healthy, Safe and Enjoyable Holiday Weekend!
