We Will Help You Pre-Qualify
When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can afford, and the size of loan you will qualify for. We can do this by considering your debts and income, your work and housing circumstances, the available funds for down payment, required reserves, and some other things. It's short and to the point; We take pride in keeping the paperwork light.
Once you qualify, we give you what's called 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 ideal mortgage loan program to meet your situation and that we're confident you'll qualify for a mortgage loan up to a certain amount.
Some advantages open to you when you've found your dream house, and have achieved pre-qualification power. First, it lets you know how much you can offer.
Having pre-qualification can also make your offer more attractive to the seller, as if you were bringing them a big box of cash! They need not be concerned that they are wasting their time if you do not be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller won't wonder if he can count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for your needed mortgage loan amount won't be something for them to fret over. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your ability to back up your offer.
