The best way to start is to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan from Tower and request a pre-approval letter. In some areas, real estate agents require a pre-approval letter before showing a buyer a house or submitting an offer. A Tower pre-approval letter shows your financing has been credit-approved, and strengthens your offer over other bidders.
