When you buy a home, thereís more to shop for than just the right place to live. Before you settle with a lender, you should shop around a bit. You want to be sure that your lender has your very best interests in mind when youíre in the midst of making one of the biggest purchases of your lifetime. Below, youíll find some of the most important questions that you need to ask a lender while youíre in the process of buying a home.


Do You Offer Any Special Programs?


Choosing the right lender involves choosing a firm that offers the types of programs that will be helpful to your specific situation. You should look for a lender that offers a wide array of loans to suit your needs. Beware of any lender who tries to push you into a certain type of loan, especially if you donít feel that it is a good fit for you. 


Do You Understand The Terms Of Certain Types Of Loans?


If you are seeking a certain type of loan, you probably should tell your lender that upfront. Of they seem familiar with it and have worked with the loan before, youíre in good hands. If the type of loan that youíre looking for is more uncommon, then you may need to shop around carefully for the right lender who understands your needs. 


Do I meet The Qualifications For Specific Loans?


The requirements for the same loan at two different lenders could be different. Things like your credit score could be a big factor. If you have a less than desirable credit score, this would also prompt you to want to look around a bit. You should know that different lenders have different terms and looking at a few lenders could be beneficial to you.


What Are The Mortgage Rates?


Youíll need a general ballpark idea of what rates will be for you when you finally secure that home loan. Keep in mind that rates fluctuate often and that an estimate will be just that. Itís not a number that will be set in stone, however, it will give you a good place to start as you shop around for a loan. 


Do You Help With Down Payments?


There are many down payment assistance programs available and your lender can help you to navigate them. The more you put down, the better your interest rate will be. If the amount that youíre able to put down on a home is a factor for you, definitely discuss it with your lender.


Can You Provide Pre-Approval Proof?


In hot real estate markets, youíre going to need some proof that youíre pre-approved in order to have the upper hand once you put in an offer on a home. Your lender should be able to provide your real estate agent with a certified letter of your pre-approval and the amount. 


Choosing the right lender is just as important as choosing the right realtor and the right home to buy. Itís just another part of the home buying process!

Ultimately, there are several must-have packing supplies to pick up before an upcoming move, and these include:

1. Boxes of Varying Sizes

Transporting items of different sizes can be difficult. Fortunately, there are many quick, easy ways to find moving boxes of varying sizes.

Typically, you can buy moving boxes at any home improvement or hardware store. Depending on how much you own, you may need to pick up tiny, small, medium and large moving boxes in assorted quantities.

Contact local convenience stores or supermarkets to find out if they offer free boxes. Be sure to reach out to these shops at least a few weeks before your move; that way, you can pick up free boxes and still have plenty of time to pack up your belongings.

2. Packing Materials

Bubble wrap, polyurethane foam and other packing materials guarantee that your personal belongings will stay safe as you travel from Point A to Point B. Therefore, you should purchase a variety of packing materials to protect antiques, glassware and other fragile items during your move.

Of course, it never hurts to be creative with packing materials, either. And if you have old clothing or towels, you may be able to use these items as packing materials too.
