We Can Help You Pre-Qualify

When we pre-qualify you, we help you figure out how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can fit in your budget, and how much we of a loan you will qualify for. During this process, we explore your borrowing potential - analyzing your employment, available money for down payment, debt, income, and other areas. We require a minimum amount of paperwork, with a short,basic process.

Once you qualify, we present to you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent may refer to it as a "pre-qual"), which says that we are partnering with you to find the best mortgage loan to meet your financial needs and that we're confident you will qualify for a mortgage for up to a certain amount.

Buying Clout

Several beneifits open to you after you've found your next house, and have achieved pre-qualification. The first is that you will be sure the amount you can afford when calculating your offer.

The seller of the home won't be concerned that he can't trust you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you will need.Your qualifying for the necessary mortgage loan amount will not cause them concern. You can have the clout of a buyer ready to make the purchase right now!
