Shopping for a best home loan?

Post by jstage »

How do you do this?

We have an offer accepted. We have a pre-approval letter from one lender (who ran our credit) so we'll have one full loan information from them. How do we shop for others? I know we can do however many in a certain time period and it won't damage our credit...do I just fill out from different banks and give them permission to pull credit and its just fine?

Do I bother with Quicken Loans? I have heard mixed reviews. We bought our first home and used Quicken because it seemed easiest. This is our second primary home purchase and I'd like to do a better job of shopping for the best rate...but I don't really know how I do that.

Thank you for any tips or steps!
