Why Get Pre-Qualified?
Pre-qualification acts as a dry run of the loan application process. The mortgage lender will use details you provide about your credit, income, assets and debts to arrive at an estimate of how much mortgage you can afford. The whole process may take only minutes or a few hours at most, and is free.
While a "pre-qual" is non-binding to the lender (because the information you provide has not been verified), it does serve as a good indication to potential sellers of your general creditworthiness.
Many times being Pre-Qualified is key to even getting your offer considered. Most sellers will not accept an offer without at least a pre-approval letter, so if you are serious about buying this is the critical first step towards getting you in your new home.
Taking that step further to obtaining a Pre-Approval will give you that extra power behind your offer and peace of mind to the seller that they have a "real buyer" that will get that offer turned into a contract! Don't leave negotiation power on the table by not preparing yourself with a professional, experienced lender at your side.
