We can also set up an automated E-Mail alert for homes that match your criteria. This ensures you see every home the moment it comes on the market.
We require our clients to get pre-approved with a local lender of their choice before we schedule showings. Once you get pre-approved, you can see as many homes as you like. It is important to use a local lender rather than an online lender. Working with a local lender shows that you are serious about buying a home and makes any offer stronger. If you do not have a lender, just ask and we will recommend you one. Please email us the pre-approval Letter as soon as you receive it.
