call a loan officer and get pre-qualified up to a certain amount. Doing so does not obligate you to buy anything. Check your yellow pages for mortgages

The BEST way to get one is have the cash in an account all ready and just have your personal banker write a generic letter saying you have the funds in the account for X property. DO NOT have them put in the specific ammount of money you have, the seller can leverage that against you.

I cannot say it's the most honest way but it works if you have a relative with a large bank account.  Simply print out a statement and cross the name and numbers out.  The banks will just think that you have wanted your account info hidden.  I have done this many times for myself and others.

I wouldn't consider it fraud if you actually close and pay them. 

Now, if you use it to secure financing, then it would be fraud.  There is no financing here to where you could deceive the bank.

Edit: technically it is a small form of fraud, but the most it would merit is a slap of the hand by your local authorities.  :biggrin

The point of getting a pof is to get the bank to negotiate with ya to get a deal that makes sense. There isn't any fraud involved what so ever. Its more like poker.

hassanr is right there is no fraud involved with blacking out names its the same as having a company provide you the same. Banks just want to make sure you can close and that you don't tie up a house for a month and bail. Another way around this is to make nice with a realtor who does reo's remember they hold the key to who gets the house not the bank.

Soooo.......why waste your time getting the POF from a lender or investor.  Why not just type one up on your computer in MS Word or similar program and use that?

Saves having to "black things out".     

Oh, I know...that would not be legitimate.   :doh

How is the Realtor in charge of who gets the REO? I was under the impression that the bank has the final say if they were to accept any type of offer whether it be a low ball or what they wanted in the first place. Does the Realtor have a right to reject offers before they present them to the bank who owns the property?
