First Mortgage

4 Replies

Hey bigger pockets, I have taken the step of getting pre qualified for my first mortgage. I've been doing some shopping around with both larger national lending companies and a few local banks and credit unions. I thought it might be helpful to ask bigger pockets for some advice on shopping for a mortgage. What are some things I need to be looking out for or pursuing? And can anyone refer a lender you have had a successful relationship with?

I am a first time home buyer
I will be living in the property
Purchasing a multi family (2-4 units)
And I am looking in the Atlanta metro area.

 Did you find a good lender? I am in the same position.
