Found house, when can I make offer?

QuestionsFound house, when can I make offer?
asked 3 years ago

I’m 70 days away from being eligible to apply for FHA (post short sale) I found the house we want to buy. What’s the earliest I can make an offer on the house? Do I need an FHA number in order to have a preapproval? I’m in Pittsburgh, PA and if that matters. I’m getting conflicting info, some people say I can put an offer a week before because it requires that you apply for a mortgage 6 days after offer is accepted, but other people say different. Online I saw that usually people apply for mortgages 15 days after the offer is accepted. What’s the norm? I’m counting the days Smiley Happy
