Can we just go to our bank for qualifying? I don't think it would be an issue. We have enough income, good credit (like around 800...), and no debt.

Not picky on new vs old... probably not short sale/foreclosure if they can't guarantee a move-in date. But maybe.
Take a look at the houses that you like in the area you're looking at. Write down the agents names. Check them out with the local chamber of commerce, the better business bureau and the local realtor's group to see which ones are good. Then, interview the top three or four and see how well you click with them. Do they respect your budget? If you say you only want to look at brick houses, would they try to steer you to a stucco exterior? Ask lots of questions. (No, I am not a realtor. I know a lot of realtors and got some very good advice when we were looking for our current home.)

And do go ahead and prequalify. It makes the whole process much easier as you know what your budget is. It helps lower your stress level. We lowered our budget below what we prequalified for to allow for any modifications we might need. We ended up not having to do anything to the house when we bought it, not even paint.

We used a mom of a childhood friend. Went fine.

I'd say if you're already worried though, skip it.

THIS. Get pre approved.
