Your offer being accepted and your experience during your transaction depends heavily on your lender. Get a referral from your agent and also explore previous lenders you’ve worked with or a referral from a co-worker, friend or family member. It should be a lender that agents in the community will recognize and has a good reputation for closing deals and being honest, diligent and a good communicator. Sometimes having one bank and one mortgage broker is a good way to shop the best value. Lenders can make or break your offer and will often be the difference between a smooth transaction and a very difficult and stressful one for you and everybody else involved.
