Can I shop around for mortgage rates?

Often times when my clients have already gotten a pre-approval letter and are under contract on a house, they'll ask me if it's okay to shop around for different mortgage quotes. My answer? Absolutely!⁣

Even a small change in interest rates can make a big difference over time, so I highly recommend shopping around. ⁣

Their next question is typically this: "Will this impact my credit score?"⁣

According to TransUnion, you have a window to shop around for a mortgage. Multiple inquiries of the same type of request and for a similar amount of money made within a reasonable time frame from one another will be considered as one inquiry.

Thinking of buying? Save this post for later!
