Our Three Biggest Tips

Choose the Right Loan

It may seem like there are a million and one loans to choose from, but the right one is closer than you think! Whether you're hoping to do a conventional fixed-rate mortgage, an adjustable-rate mortgage, or you qualify for a VA loan, you have a number of different options for buying your dream home.

Meet with a Mortgage Lender (or two)

It's important to "shop around" for the best deal on your mortgage loan. That's why we recommend meeting with at least two different Triangle lenders. Let us know if you'd like a recommendation—we know plenty of professional lenders throughout the Triangle we'd love to connect you with!

Become Pre-Approved

The easiest way to set your budget is by getting pre-approved for a mortgage. This involves sitting down with a lender before you go home shopping. The lender will review every detail of your finances (your annual income, any assets you may have, your outstanding debt, your credit score, etc.). After this review, they'll give you a number: that's how much the bank is willing to lend you.
