Considering the rates still low you may go ahead and buy a second house for investment. However, take in account that you will not occupy the house so the lender will consider you an investor, therefore the down-payment percentage could be 20% and rates can be higher for an investor loan.
I concur with Nikolas Marulis. I should interview and choose the right agent according with your needs and mainly your location. The agent must be very familiarized with the area your condo is located for an accurate pricing analysis. Good luck.
Hello, you can be pre-qualify online depending on the company. Some companies have an online website where you can obtain some financial feedback. However, the best way to get pre-approved is by contacting a lender or loan officer of you confidence. I know many loan officers who can call you and make a pre-qualification by phone, but they will give you certain details after asking you sensitive information. Please contact me and I can help you with your pre-approval process.
