Got A Tip?

Tips

Seeking Approval

Icon_tip_3

The sooner you get your mortgage pre-approval in order, the sooner you’ll be able to really dig into the process of house-hunting. A pre-approval lets you know exactly how much money you can borrow from your lender. Some lenders will do pre-approvals over the phone or via the web; others will want to meet in person. They’ll ask you about your monthly debt, your assets (how much money you have in savings) and your income. The lender will also pull your credit and take a look at your credit score.

A pre-approval is a tentative “okay” from the lender. They’ll issue you a pre-approval document that lets you know how much you’re approved for. Having that in hand when you start shopping will make your life much easier! Once you have that golden piece of paper, you can make an offer on a home and have the peace of mind to know that the mortgage is just one step away.

A good place to start is your bank; you can also ask friends and family for referrals for lenders or mortgage brokers. Real estate agents are another good source, as they can point you in the direction of a lender.

DID YOU KNOW? According to the 2006 National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the typical homebuyer is 41 years old, makes $71,800 and purchased a home costing $214,000 with 1,815 square feet? Sixty-one percent of homebuyers are married couples. But the number of single women buying homes is on the rise: A record 22%, compared with just 9% of single men. Furthermore, the average first-time home buyer is 32 years old and makes an average of $58,300? They purchased a home costing $165,000 and plan to be in the home for six years.

My husband encouraged us to come out of our shell and tell the world about the man behind the medicine that brought us back together after 7 years of separation. He was so astonished by the amazing spell by Dr. Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) that reunited our undying love for each other that proved we are sole mate. There has been a barrier between us, we regularly disagrees with each other, argue over unnecessary things and fight almost every week when we were still unmarried. We eventually separated for some months due unsolvable issues before he moved to Italy for 4 years.
Though it might sound impossible to still get hold of your crush for that period of time without any means of communication. I always felt he took my heart away with him because I could not fall in love again and I could not stop thinking about him but I can not be with him. Doc Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) proved that nothing relating to love issues is impossible for him; doctor also proved that true love does not die after broking the barriers between us. Days after the spell, he returned unexpectedly to take me along with him. My happiest moment is seeing us live happily for a year without issues before getting married. We are still astonished by the good spiritual work that brought us together forever.
