Looking at houses without getting pre-qualified for a mortgage is like going shopping without your wallet. You will likely find something you really like and not be able to act on it. Sellers and agents want to know that the home is being shown to someone that can buy it. It is an important first step to sit down with a loan officer and learn what your financing options are, what documents you will need and if there are any issues that will need to be resolved prior to writing an offer. When you are ready to make an offer on that special home, your lender can write a letter showing you are qualified to purchase, which will strengthen your offer.
