Buyer's need to make sure they are "Good to Go"  when trying to buy a home these days.  It is very common for buyers to come up against multiple offers and we want you to gain the upper edge in these situations by suggesting you work with a lender who assures your assets, employment, and credit score are approved with an underwriter so that we can assure the seller we will only need a satisfactory appraisal and title search to successfully close the transaction.
