Even if you've not narrowed down houses to visit yet, it is advantageous to see your mortgage loan professional first. What for? What can we do for you if you have not negotiated a purchase amount, and do not yet know how much you need to borrow?


When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide the amount in mortgage payments you can afford, and how much we of a loan you will qualify for. We accomplish this by considering your income and debts, your work and residence situations, the available funds for down payment, required reserves, and some other things. It's a short, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

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