Relocating and Your New Home Loan

The ideal scenario for transplanted families is moving into a new home….ONCE!  When lenders require borrowers start their new job prior to loan approval, moving once is near impossible.  Instead, this challenging process forces 2 moves:

  • Once to their new city and job
  • Twice after qualifying for a new home loan

All things considered, this inconveniences the relocated family.
