Getting Preapproved

Austin is one of the most desirable real estate markets in the state of Texas and it’s also one of the most competitive. Even though property values as well as the available inventory of homes for sale are projected to increase modestly throughout 2019, there is a lot of competition for the better homes. In other words, it pays to be prepared.

The most important first step in the home buying process is getting preapproved. Most realtors in the Austin and Killeen area will insist that you have a preapproval letter just to get in the game. Good news - Nutter offers No Cost Home Loan Preapprovals in Austin and Killeen. We can provide you with a Nutter Preapproval Letter, usually within 24 hours, so you’ll have the power of a cash buyer and the peace of mind that you can make an offer with confidence. Get more information on getting preapproved.

ATTENTION: U.S. Veterans & Active Duty Military Personnel

The secret is starting to get out. Located less than an hour drive from Austin, Killeen’s reputation as a place to find a quality home at a reasonable price is making it a go-to city for home buyers who work in Austin as well as Veterans and active duty military personnel who are stationed or wish to live close to Fort Hood.

Killeen is the home of Fort Hood, the most populous military installation in the world. Over 150,000 Veterans, U.S. Army active military personnel and their families live in the area. On behalf of the Nutter Company and our employees, thank you for your service!

Nutter Home Loans was founded in 1951 by James B. Nutter, Sr., a U.S. Army Veteran. The first home loan the Nutter Company ever made was a VA Home Loan back in 1951! We truly care about helping our military personnel and their families buy a home with a great low rate and low closing costs, unlike some VA mortgage lenders who advertise on TV but overcharge Veterans thousands of dollars in closing costs for their loans.

We have a host of special resources just for Veterans and active duty personnel who are looking to take advantage of their VA benefits to buy a home. If you have general questions about VA Home Loans or you’re just curious about your eligibility, check out our VA Resource Center or read our Nutter Guide to Buying a House for Veterans.
