When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can fit in your budget, and the size of loan you can qualify for. During this process, we calculate your borrowing power - reviewing your job, available money for down payment, debts, income, and other areas. It's quick and to the point; We keep the paperwork light.

We will give you a Pre-Qualification Letter if you qualify, that says that we are confident you'll qualify for up to a predetermined amount of mortgage dollars.

Power in the Pre-Qual

Holding your pre-qualification letter, some advantages are yours at the point you find the house you want to put together an offer for. First, it lets you know how much you're able to offer. Your pre-qualification can also make your offer look even better to the home seller, like you were bringing them a big box of cash! They need not worry that that they are wasting their time if you won't be able to have the ability 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 loan.Your qualifying for your needed loan amount won't be something for them to fret over. You have the capability to back your offer up.
