If you're really trying to show sellers or agents that you're serious, just call whatever lender and ask for another letter with the correct state. It shouldn't be a big deal as long as they're licensed in both states.

As long as the Lender is licensed in that State then you're fine. I can do loans in FL and I'd be happy to help!

Well although this is possible, you have to see where your lender is licensed. Sometimes lenders are only licensed in the states they are in so they may not be able to give a loan for properties outside of that state. Although, they may be able to refer you to someone who can help you out in that particular state. If you are working with a big mainstream bank then you will most likely be fine. I suggest you shop around for lenders and ask them because some may be able to do this, and others may not.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Your pre-approval is able to be used for other states. Lenders have what is called risk based pricing and have different rates for different states. Just make sure that the rate that you are given is specific to Florida. Just make sure that the lender you did your pre-approval is licensed in Florida. You may enter the lender's name in this site to validate their lending authority in different states: nmlsconsumeraccess.org

Your payment may be different for Fl than the state you did your initial pre-approval for, so make sure that your debt to income ratio is within guidelines to get pre-approved!

You will need to apply for a loan with a lender who is licensed to lend in the state where you plan to purchase.
