You got an offer accepted without a pre-approval in hand? Or are you just thinking about going with a different lender than the one you were pre-approved by?

Genuine question, not familiar with the process.

funny

I got a pre approval from a lender . But I want to go to a different lender for the process

I got pretty bad experience with Better. I totally acknowledge that these are individual experiences and random data points, so other people may have a better experience with them. However I had started two loans with Better and they both failed underwriting. I went to a different lender with the exact same doc and condition and closed all fine. My lender is in NC and called certainty home loans. I’d say they close fine but they don’t have the best rates.

Second time home buyer in NC, using SoFi and getting great rates. Happy to refer if helpful! Both times they seemed good.

Get 2 or 3 lenders to bid and get you the lowest Apr. But don't let it drag on for more than a few days depending on when you agreed to close.

Don’t worry about North Carolina. Use an online lender, they are so much faster than the big banks. I had good experiences with LenderFi and LoanMonkey last year.
