On the surface one would think a pre-approval for an FHA mortgage from one lender should be no different than with another lender, right?
It was a necessary move.
As closing got nearer I heard the "new" lender say something resembling “I wonder what so and so used to determine the pre-approval amount.”
Are the standards different from lender to lender? Just wondering….
I always recommend buyers investigate mortgage products at their normal banking institution whether credit union, bank or whatever. Going where they know you is always a good starting point.
Then you can compare products later.
