    27. 27. Slide 28 of 49 Break! David Yocum Ken Snedegar
    28. 28. 10-Minute Break 10 mins 5 mins End Let’s Get Started!
    29. 29. Mortgages
    30. 30. Review Your Financial Situation ● Pull credit report, look for errors ● Establish comfort level for monthly payment ● Figure out how much monthly income goes towards debt: 28 – 33% healthy ● Pay down credit balances to 1/3rd ● Don’t open any new lines of credit ● Don’t buy any big ticket items ● Source of money ● Current employment status
    31. 31. Get Pre-Approved Early A pre-approval letter is a letter from a bank or a lender estimating how much they'll lend you ● Establishes what you can afford & makes offer process go faster ● Redfin asks that you get pre-approved before your third tour ● Good for 90 days, depending on lender Info needed: ● W-2, two pay-stubs, tax returns, bank statements
    32. 32. Pulling Credit: Is It Harmful? ● Your credit report must be reviewed by a lender before you can obtain a pre-approval ● If you know your score, a lender should be able to give you ballpark pricing for their loan products ● Better to know sooner rather than later about credit problems ● Maintaining a pre-approval has a negligible impact on your credit score
    33. 33. Start Shopping for Lenders Compile a list of 3-4 local lenders Good sources include: ● Redfin's partner lenders ● Referrals from friends, family & co-workers ● Online review sites, such as Yelp ● Local chains and offices *Know your lender
