You first need to a pre-approval letter from a lender. If you don't have a lender you are working with, I'd be happy to get you to the lender I do a lot of work with --- Have you seen Scott Rivera's TV show? Scott is my broker and his sister, Cherie Bowen, who is on the show with him is a lender. She will be happy to help you get pre-approved. If your credit is a little challenging, she can help you get it straightened out and ready to go!
Once you have that letter in hand, you should select a Realtor to work with in order to find you homes to look at in the areas you want to live. I would like the opportunity to help you find your home!
Feel free to email, call or text me and I'll get you Cherie's information so you can get started. If you have already selected a lender, then just let me know if you'd like me to be your Realtor!
