Literally WHERE to look for a lender?

3 Replies

Conventional lenders always have a disclaimer regarding which states they operate it.  As someone investing out of state, should I be looking for a lender where I live, or in the market where I'm investing?  

I do not accept offers from an out of town no name mortgage company.  Only locals. But if it is large banks with local presence that is OK.

These internet preapprove letters do not get the attention from local listing agents. Same with out of town EMD checks. Sorry.
