The Community

Graham is a rural community just south of Puyallup and east of Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM), approximately 20 miles from downtown Tacoma. Originally part of the traditional lands of the Nisqually and Puyallup tribes, the area was settled in the early 1900s by workers for the Cascade Timber Company, one of the first outfits to start harvesting timber in the area. Logging camps and mills soon followed, and a number of business were established in the area to support them, including a barbershop, a blacksmith, feed and supplies, an auto and tractor repair shop, a meat market, cold storage lockers, a tavern and a restaurant. As timber resources dwindled in the mid-1900s, residents began to commute out of the area for work. Graham remains a good option for people seeking a rural home life in commuting distance of Tacoma, Olympia and JBLM.

Talk to a Lender Before Starting Your Home Search


Searching for a new home can be fun and exciting, but it’s important to make sure there aren’t any financial obstacles in your way before you embark on the home buying journey.


The Dream


Imagine finding your dream home. It has everything that you want – a big open floor plan, an updated kitchen, a view of the water and plenty of room for your growing family. The only hitch? Lots of other buyers are interested in the house too, and you find yourself in a multiple offer situation. You haven’t spoken with a lender yet, and you haven’t obtained preapproval for a loan. What happens next? You’ll likely lose out to a buyer with solid financing in place.




The Moral of the Story?


Speak with a lender BEFORE you start searching for a home so that you understand (1) what loan options are available to you and (2) how much money you can afford to borrow. A good lender will ask you for lots of information before providing you with answers to those questions. They’ll ask you about your employment history, your borrowing history and your credit history. They’ll also help you understand what NOT to do before getting a loan for your new home purchase (i.e. financing a new car). Once you’ve provided your lender with all the necessary information and you’ve received a solid preapproval letter, you’ll be ready to start shopping for your new house – and you’ll be glad you did your homework. In a competitive housing market like this one, it’s common for listing agents to contact a prospective buyer’s lender to make sure the lender has done a thorough job vetting the buyer’s finances. You’ll want to make sure your lender can respond to that call with a firm YES.


When you’re shopping for a lender, a recommendation from a Realtor that you trust is always a good place to start. Picking a lender is a little bit like picking a doctor. You want someone with experience, someone who makes you feel comfortable and someone you trust. You’ll also want to make sure the lender that you’re considering has a loan program that’s right for you and a good record for closing on time.




If you have any questions about the home buying process and/or if you’d like more information about reliable lenders in the area, give me a call.  I’m here to help.
