This month in our “Navigating the Market” series we are looking at the issues facing buyers and sellers this spring. In Saturday’s Real Estate section cover story, we looked at neighborhoods in the D.C. area where you can still get a deal on a home.

Once you find a home to buy, you still need to obtain a mortgage. These days, that can be a challenge. We’ve asked Craig Strent, chief executive officer and founder of Apex Home Loans in Rockville, to chat about home loans. He will join us today at 1 p.m. to answer your mortgage and refiancing questions.

Feel free to submit questions for Craig early by clicking here.
