Local Partners in Baker & Grant Counties – Lenders
The local partners in Baker & Grant Counties of lenders that live and work in our community can be of great assistant to you. It’s most important to have a pre-approval letter from them when making an offer. This shows the seller that you have done your homework and you are qualified to purchase the home. It doesn’t take too long to do it either. If your credit score is lower than what you thought it is, they can help give you advice to improve your score to get a better interest rate. The better your credit score, the better interest rate you will have. Check out our local partners.

After your offer has been accepted by the Seller, it is recommended to have the home inspected by a professional Inspector. Normally you have done within 10 or 12 business days after offer has been accepted by the parties. The inspection takes about 3 to 4 hours, depending on the size of the home. It’s recommended that you attend the inspection with the inspector if they are ok with it. Some inspectors like to have the home to themselves during the inspections.
