arrange finances before buying home

I know every Realtor seems to say it these days BUT IT"S REALLY IMPORTANT especially RIGHT NOW. Why? There is talk of interest rates 'hiking' in 2017. We're also expecting housing inventory to be sparse throughout the year. You'll need the advantage of being able to 'pounce' on a home rather than see the deal go to someone else who already had their 'ducks in a row'.
Not sure who to go to? Just call/text/whatever and get in touch today...
