Well, Cody, looks like the weather is pretty bad. I won't be going up to Little Falls today to show any homes at all.

Will probably reschedule for tomorrow. If you want to meet for coffee to discuss the home purchase process I can make time for you after 1.

There's much to know.

Talk to your loan officer, then write your offer. Will we assume that because you looked at a house that you have an agent? Did he/she not already help you with this?

Hi, Codi!
It's way past time for you to be pre-approved for a mortgage. I would contact a few lenders right away. You need to talk to more than one lender and more than one agent to decide who will be the best fit for your communication style.

Expect that they will be asking lots of confidential information. They will pull a credit report and be verifying your employment. Don't be offended, it's just what has to be done for you to pass muster with the underwriter.

Start with your local bank and then, get a few referrals from your buyer agent. Do you have a buyer agent?? It won't cost you anything out of pocket and will be in your best interests.

Read this article to see why:

good luck~

Hi Codi, this looks like a nice house! Your professional Realtor should have recommendations for you as to mortgage professionals they have worked with who really help first time buyers. Ask your friends, family, PTA, church, etc for recommendations. Interview three mortgage officers, ask for references, and call the references. I can think of seven possible loan scenarios that may work for you. Your Realtor and mortgage person may have more. If you need help call or send an email. Our mortgage people can get you qualified in about 15 minutes on the phone as well as find out if there are DP and / or assistance programs that may benefit you.

I will be showing homes in Little Falls tomorrow beginning at 11. I should be done with those clients by 1 at the latest. Would you care to look at it at that time?

Also, I have people I can refer you to for financing.

If you wish to speak my number is 320 493 5145 and my name is Aaron
