Yes, our Realty Partners require you to be Pre approved with our Partner Lender in order to work with them. You would be surprised at the amount of real estate transactions that the loan is denied even with a Pre Approval. You and your agent will have invested a significant amount of time and energy finding you the right home and they want to insure that all parties including the lender is able to follow through on the transaction.
Keep in mind that you have a very good chance of getting a better rate at lower costs with our Partner Lender. If you have already completed a Pre Approval, chances are you still have all the documents handy and can email or fax them over. It just may save you money every month.
