Even if you've not so much as picked out houses to visit yet, it is important to visit with your mortgage professional early. What for? It might be difficult to understand the way we can help even before you begin to negotiate.


When we pre-qualify you, we help you determine the amount in monthly payments you can afford, and the size of loan you can qualify for. In this process, we determine your borrowing power - analyzing your job, available money for down payment, existing debt, income, and other areas. It's quick and basic; We take pride in keeping the paperwork light.

After you qualify, we give you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might refer to it as a "pre-qual"), which says that we are helping you to find the ideal loan to meet your financial needs and that we're confident you'll qualify for a mortgage up to a certain amount.

Power in the Pre-Qual

When you locate the house that meets your needs, and you decide to put together an offer, being pre-qualified for a loan will do a number of things. First, you have some concrete numbers in mind, as the amount you will be able to borrow. Having pre-qualification will also make your offer more attractive to the seller, like you were bringing them a suitcase of cash! They need not be concerned that they are wasting their time if you can't be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller of the home won't be concerned that he can't trust you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for your needed loan amount won't be something for them to be concerned about. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your buying power.
