Why Pre-Qualification is Important

It is valuable to visit with a mortgage professional early, even before you've decided the kind of home you hope to find. Why? How can we help if you haven't made your offer, and don't know yet how much you need to borrow?


We will help you calculate how much of a mortgage you can afford, and how much money you may be able to borrow, by taking you through pre-qualifying. This process outlines your finances - your debt, income, career, and down payment money, among other things. We will require a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.

We give you a Pre-Qualification Letter when you qualify, that says that we're confident you can qualify for up to a specific amount of mortgage dollars.

Power in the Pre-Qual

With your pre-qualification letter, several advantages are yours once you locate the house you want to put together an offer on. The first is that you can be sure the amount you'll be able to afford when calculating your offer. Of greater importance to the seller, your pre-qualification is like your having entered their house with a bag full of money ready to make the deal! They won't need to worry that they're wasting their time if you don't have the ability to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you'll need.Your qualifying for your needed mortgage loan amount will not cause them concern. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your buying power.
