Why is obtaining a written preapproval the first step in your home search?

In most areas of the country, the amount of serious buyers outnumber the supply of homes. This makes a lot of traditional thought about a Real Estate search obsolete. Just like chain wallets and baggy jeans, the days of making an offer before speaking to a lender are over.
