It is valuable to bring in your mortgage loan professional as soon as possible — even before you have started to research neighborhoods. Why? How can we help you if you haven't negotiated an amount, and don't know yet how much you want to borrow?

Pre-Qualify

We can help you see how much of a mortgage loan you can afford, and the amount of money you will be able to borrow, by walking you through pre-qualifying. This process takes you through your current financial situation - your debts, income, career, and cash available for down payment, among other things. We will require a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.

After you qualify, will give you a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might refer to it as a "pre-qual"), that says that we are helping you to find the right loan program to meet your financial needs and that we are confident you'll qualify for a loan for up to a certain amount.

Pre-Qual Power

Holding your pre-qualification letter, some advantages fall at your feet when you locate the home you want to make an offer on. First, it helps you know the amount that you are able to offer. More important to the current home owner, your being pre-qualified is like your having entered their house with a suitcase full of money ready to make the deal! They need not wonder if they are wasting their time if you won't be able to have the ability to qualify for a big enough mortgage loan. The seller won't worry if he can trust you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you'll need.Your qualifying for the necessary mortgage loan amount won't be something for them to be concerned about. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your ability to back up your offer.

It's quick and basic; and we take pride in keeping the paperwork to a minimum.
