4 / Seek pre-approval from the bank

It’s best to seek a pre-approval from the bank, so you know your budget before you start looking at property. I’ll talk to you about the best bank to apply with and then prepare and present the application on your behalf. Once pre-approval has been given you can start looking at property with clarity and confidence.
