buyer in hawaii, looking to get a preapproval to buy a florida home

my mother in law live in hawaii and she wants to buy a house in florida.

it's a 110k home and i think she has about 30-40k to put down.
she's went to two banks to get a preapproval to make an offer, but the hawaiin banks say they can't do that.

also, it will be an investment property.

does anyone have any suggestions?
thanks in advance.

You may not have to use a mortgage broker just because you are buying an investment property.  If you would like, I can put you in contact with a direct lender who would be able to loan your mother in law the money.

It is best to finance local - but the big lenders like Wells Fargo or Bank of America - have websites and local loan officers and all kinds of mortgage programs....Or do a google search for local lenders in the florida city she is wanting to buy in - also try the new bank she plans on having her checking and savings with....
