The Portland and Gresham Housing markets are in high-demand, this could decrease inventory and in turn create bidding wars for new home buyers. Getting a local mortgage broker can give you an edge.
A recent Wall Street Journal article about winning bidding wars, it suggests that real estate agents want to work with buyers whose lenders know the local market and have a record of getting deals done. That reassures the listing agent and the seller that a sale will close.
Nerd Wallet offers another reason a Mortgage Broker can help in a bidding war; a pre-approval letter. Nerd Wallet says, “Getting pre-qualified, which merely confirms your income and how much a bank might be willing to lend you based on your credit profile, isn’t the same as having preapproval for a specific purchase offer.”
If you are seeking a home on the market that is in high demand, having a mortgage broker can give you an edge over a buyer that does not have one.
