Over the years, we’ve been asked numerous questions on a consistent basis. We thought we’d enlighten the public, give you a little extra into the market so that you’re more prepared as you start the buying process. One question we get a lot is, “How do I start the home buying process?”

Of course, I would recommend you find a realtor you like and trust, that you know will represent you. But more importantly you should start by finding out what you can afford in the form of a pre-approval. We often recommended local bankers. They’re used to the area you're working in, the agents you’ll work with, and you’ll have a much more enjoyable experience working with someone local.
