Why it's Important to Pre-Qualify

Even if you have not narrowed down houses to visit yet, it is important to see your mortgage professional first. Why? It might be hard to understand the ways we can help even before you start to negotiate.

We Can Help You Pre-Qualify

We will help you calculate how much of a mortgage loan you can afford, and how much money you can borrow, by walking you through pre-qualifying. We will achieve this by considering your income and debts, your employment and housing situations, the available funds for down payment, required reserves, and some other things. It's a quick, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

After you are considered eligible, we prove our confidence in your capacity to qualify for a loan by awarding you a Pre-Qualification Letter (also known as a "pre-qual").

Pre-Qual Power

A number of beneifits open to you when you find your new house, and have pre-qualification power. First of all, you have some definite numbers in mind, as the amount you can borrow. Even more important to the seller of the house, your pre-qualification letter gives them confidence - as if you'd arrived at their home with a big box of cash to back up the offer! They won't have to worry that they are wasting their time if you can't qualify for a big enough mortgage loan. The seller won't worry if he can count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for your needed loan amount will not cause them concern. You have the capability to back up your offer.

We will help you pre-qualify

When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide how much of a monthly payment you can afford, and the loan amount you will qualify for. We achieve this by reviewing your income and debts, your employment and residence situations, the available funds for a down payment, required reserves, and some other things. It is a quick, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.
