Why it's Important to Pre-Qualify
Even if you've not picked out homes to visit yet, it's advantageous to see your mortgage pro early. What for? If you don't know yet how much house you want to qualify for, how could we help?
We will help determine how much of a mortgage loan you can afford, and the amount of money you will be able to borrow, by walking you through the pre-qualification process. We can do this by analyzing your income and debts, your work and housing situations, the funds available for down payment, required reserves, and other considerations. We will require a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.
After you qualify, will present to you a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might call it a "pre-qual"), that documents the fact that we are helping you to find the right mortgage to meet your financial needs and that we are confident you'll qualify for a mortgage loan for a specific amount.
Power in the Pre-Qual
When you locate the house that catches your eye, and you want to make an offer, being pre-qualified for a mortgage will do a couple of things. First of all, you have some definite numbers in mind, as the total you will qualify for on your mortgage loan.
More important to the seller, your pre-qualification is like your having entered their house with a bag full of money to purchase their home! They will not need to worry that that they are wasting their time if you don't be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller of the home won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for your needed mortgage loan amount will not be something for them to fret over. They have a virtual guarantee that they can trust your buying power.
