It can be valuable to visit with a mortgage professional early, even if you haven't settled on what sort of home to search for. Why? What can we do for you if you have not negotiated an amount, and don't know yet the amount you need to borrow?
We will help determine how much of a mortgage you can afford, and how much money you will be able to borrow, by walking you through pre-qualifying. We will achieve this by analyzing your income and debts, your work and housing circumstances, your funds available for a down payment, required reserves, and some other things. We ask for a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.
After you qualify, will present to you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent may call it a "pre-qual"), which says that we are helping you to find the best mortgage loan to fit your needs and that we're confident you will qualify for a mortgage loan for up to a specific amount.
Power in the Pre-Qual
Armed with your pre-qualification letter, a number of advantages are yours when you locate the house you want to make an offer for. First, it lets you know how much you are able to offer.
Being pre-qualified also will make your offer look even better to the home seller, like you were bringing them a suitcase of cash! They won't have to worry that they have been wasting their time if you don't be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller won't wonder if he can trust you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you'll need.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount will not be something for them to fret over. They have a virtual guarantee that they can trust your buying power.
