Mortgage loan pre-approval can be the advantage you need to get the home you want in today's ultra-competitive housing market.

Once you have decided to start looking for a home, you need to be prepared. You should have an accurate idea of what a loan would cost, how much you can borrow, what rate you qualify for and more. Your mortgage lender can give you this information.

Pre-qualification versus Pre-approval

Pre-qualification from a mortgage lender is an estimate based on information you supply which is then used to calculate an approximation of how much you are qualified to borrow. But pre-qualification is just an estimate. Pre-approval is when a lender verifies your information and with that verification can approve loan amount. This process includes running a credit check and verifying income.

The benefit of pre-approval over pre-qualification is that a seller knows you are serious and can afford to make a purchase based on your pre-approval.

In today’s housing market, buyer’s need every edge to enter into a contract for a home. By having a pre-approval in-hand when viewing a property, a buyer has a distinct advantage over prospective buyers who have not yet went through the steps to ensure loan pre-approval. Sellers often prefer to entertain offers from buyers who have pre-approval.
