Why Pre-Qualification is Important
It's valuable to bring in your mortgage professional early — even before you have started to research neighborhoods. Why? If you don't yet know how much home you need to qualify for, how can we help?
When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide the amount in monthly mortgage payments you can fit in your budget, and how much we of a loan you will qualify for. During this process, we look at your borrowing potential - analyzing your earning status, money available for down payment, existing debt, income, and other areas. We will require a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.
We award you a Pre-Qualification Letter if you qualify, which says that we're confident you'll qualify for up to a certain amount of mortgage dollars.
Several advantages open to you once you have found your next house, and have pre-qualification power. First, it helps you know the amount that you're able to offer.
Even more important to the seller, your pre-qualification status gives them certainty - as if you had entered their home with a suitcase of cash to back up the offer! They won't have to be concerned they are wasting their time if you can't be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller won't worry if he can trust you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount will not be something for them to fret over. You'll have the clout of a buyer ready to make the purchase on the spot!
