Why Pre-Qualification is Important
It is important to see a mortgage loan pro early, even if you haven't decided the kind of house you hope to find. Why? When you don't yet know how much home you want to qualify for, what could we do for you?
When we pre-qualify you, we help you figure out how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can afford, and the loan amount you can qualify for. In this process, we calculate your ability to borrow - reviewing your earning status, money available for down payment, debt, income, and other areas. It's quick and basic; We take pride in keeping the paperwork light.
Once you qualify, we present to you a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent may refer to it as a "pre-qual"), which states that we are helping you to find the best mortgage loan program to fit your needs and that we are confident you will qualify for a loan up to a certain amount.
Holding your pre-qualification letter, some advantages are yours when you find the home you want to make an offer on. First, you have some definite numbers in mind, as the total you will qualify for with your loan.
More important to the home seller, your pre-qualification is like your having entered their house with a suitcase full of money to make the deal! They will not need to be concerned that they're wasting their time if you will not have the ability to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount will not be something for them to worry about. You have the clout of a buyer ready to make the deal right now!
