Can you get pre-qualified for a home loan in one state, but buy the house in another state?

I live in California and was pre-qualified for a home loan, however, I'm thinkin about moving to another state. Is it possible to do that or would I have to go to the new state and apply for a loan there? Also, if I get pre-qualified for a loan, can I buy a few houses with that amount or does it have to be one... show more I live in California and was pre-qualified for a home loan, however, I'm thinkin about moving to another state.
