Here are two important terms to know:
A lender is a company that makes loans directly to you. This is what they call a direct lender or a bank.
A mortgage broker is a company that researches loans from many banks. They have more mortgage products than a direct lender which can be helpful if you don’t conform to a traditional loan.
- Shop around and compare apples to apples. Once you find a loan officer that you feel comfortable with they will ask you to fill out a full or partial loan application and pull your credit.
- Then they will provide you with a pre-qualification letter or a pre-approval letter. You need a pre-qualification letter before you can make an offer on a property.
