It can be important to visit with a mortgage loan pro early, even if you haven't settled on the sort of home you hope to find. Why? It might be hard to understand the ways we can help even before you start to talk about prices and negotiations.

We Can Help You Pre-Qualify

When we pre-qualify you, we help you find out how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can afford, and how much we of a loan you can qualify for. We will accomplish this by reviewing your income and debts, your work and housing circumstances, the available funds for a down payment, required reserves, and other financial considerations. It is a quick, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

After you are considered eligible, we prove our confidence in your potential to qualify for a mortgage loan by presenting you with a Pre-Qualification Letter (also known as a "pre-qual").

Buying Clout

Some advantages open to you after you've found your next house, and have achieved pre-qualification. First, you have some general numbers in mind, as the amount you will qualify for on your loan. Even more important to the seller of the house, your pre-qualification gives them confidence - as if you had come into their home with a bag of cash to make the offer! They will not have to wonder if that they're wasting their time if you don't have the ability to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller of the home won't be concerned that he won't be able to trust you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for your needed loan amount won't be something for them to worry about. You have the capability to back up your offer.
