Helping first time buyers every step of the way
Buying your first home can be an intimidating experience. How do you know how much house you can afford?
How can you find a house that fits your budget? And how do you pick the right mortgage to finance the home of your dreams?
Fortunately, Great Western is here to support you every step of the way. We’ve been working with first-time buyers like yourself for 30 years and we can help navigate you through the process with the honesty, directness and first-rate service our nationwide customers have come to expect from us.
We’ll make sure you understand everything – from points to closing costs – and that you’re comfortable with every aspect of your mortgage before moving forward.
An easy way to get started – a pre-qual? Call Great Western and one of our experienced loan officers will gather some initial information from you to generate a prequalification letter. A pre-qual letter that states that we’ve pre-approved you for a mortgage of a certain amount. The pre-qual proves to home sellers that you’re a serious and qualified buyer – and just might give you an edge if you find yourself bidding against another buyer for the home. (It’s important to note that your pre-qual is not a guarantee that you’ll be eligible for a mortgage – but it is a great first step!)
Once you’ve found your dream house and made an offer, your Great Western mortgage loan officer will be back at your side. We know how confusing all this mortgage business can be, with ARMs and FHAs and so many terms you may never have heard before. We’ll explain to you – in plain English – the various types of mortgages available and then help you find the one that fits you best.
