Looking to buy a new home in California? If so, the chances are you will need a California mortgage lender to provide you with a pre-approval letter. Today there are many different ways to find a reputable mortgage lender in California.

  • Ask a friend, family member or neighbor: One of the best ways to find a quality lender hasn’t changed for a long time. Asking a close friend or acquaintance if they have a personable recommendation is a great way to find a mortgage professional. This type of referral is often a good way to hear about both the good and bad experiences people have had with different lenders.
  • Search Online: Finding current mortgage rates online has never been easier. You can fill out a form on a site like and get matched with multiple lenders or you can search a rate table of current California mortgage rates and choose which lender you wish to speak with. If you decide shopping online is the best way for you to find a low rate be sure to check out lender reviews to see make sure other people have had a good experience with the lender.
  • Check with State Officials: All California mortgage lenders and brokers must be licensed with either the California Department of Real Estate or the California Department of Corporations. To make sure that a lender is reputable and legitimate, check online with these agencies or check the NMLS consumer access website.

Each of these methods work well in helping you find a quality California mortgage lender. What is important is deciding what way you are most comfortable with and taking the step to meet with a lender that will help you accomplish your financing goals.
