Need to find a quality lender to guide you through the mortgage loan process? Here are some tips to help you along the way:
Ask someone you trust (family, friends, an accountant) to recommend a mortgage lender.
Ask if the lender provides free pre-qualifications and/or pre-approval.
Contact the financial institution that manages your checking/savings account.
Don't be afraid to shop around and get estimates from several lenders. Each one offers different interest rates and loan programs. By getting multiple estimates, you can see which one offers mortgage terms that are right for your needs.
