Even if you have not picked out houses to visit yet, it's valuable to contact your mortgage loan professional early. What for? When you don't yet know how much house you need to qualify for, how could we help?

We Will Help You Pre-Qualify

When we pre-qualify you, we help you determine the amount in monthly mortgage payments you can afford, and the loan amount you can qualify for. We will achieve this by analyzing your income and debts, your work and housing situations, the funds available for down payment, required reserves, and other considerations. We require a minimum amount of paperwork, with a short,basic process.

After you qualify, we give you a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might call it a "pre-qual"), that states that we are partnering with you to find the right loan to meet your situation and that we're confident you will qualify for a mortgage up to a specific amount.

Pre-Qualification Power

Armed with your pre-qualification letter, some advantages are yours when you locate the house you want to put together an offer for. The first is that you can know what you'll be able to afford when putting together the offer. Of greater importance to the seller, your being pre-qualified is like your having entered their front door with a bag full of cash ready to purchase the home! They won't need to worry that that they are wasting their time if you do not be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller of the home won't worry if he can count on you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you will need.Your qualifying for the necessary mortgage loan amount won't cause them concern. You will have the sway of a buyer ready to make the purchase on the spot!
