So you're pre-approved, you're excited to find that perfect condo, and you think you've found the perfect spot to drop an offer on. Depending on which lender you use, you could save yourself a lot of time and money if you find out a very important question right off the bat. Is the complex you're looking to purchase your condo in considered warrantable?
Let's break it down:
A non-warrantable condo is a condominiumproperty in which the loan is not eligible to be sold to Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae, and as such, they are considered by most banks to be more “risky.” In a nut shell, unless you're paying cash, you're going to have a much more difficult time obtaining a loan from your lender.

Happy condo hunting!
