Emily, getting pre-approved by a local mortgage lender is definitely your first step. I would go meet with a lender that you may already know & trust. If you don't have one, I personally would recommend working with a lender that is with a locally owned bank. A mortgage officer will be able to tell you if you qualify for a loan, how much of a loan, & if you don't qualify, they should give you tips on how to get to that point.

Another option is that you could find someone looking to rent-to-own. However, there are both good & bad qualities with this option. If you have any questions or would like to just talk about your options, feel free to contact me anytime.

Have a great day Emily!

In addition, you need to learn the local laws on original owner reinstatment. The time frame can vary and extend even AFTER you have closed on the purchase. Good luck to you! ... more
