Getting Qualified

When to Speak to a Mortgage Professional

Even if you’ve not researched houses to visit yet, it is important to see your mortgage loan professional first. Why? Maybe it is difficult to understand the way we could help even before you start to talk about prices and negotiations.



When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide how much of a monthly mortgage payment you can fit in your budget, and the size of loan you will qualify for. We can do this by considering your debts and income, your employment and residence circumstances, the available funds for down payment, required reserves, and other financial considerations. It is a short, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

Once you qualify, will give you what’s called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might refer to it as a “pre-qual”), that states that we are helping you to find the ideal mortgage loan program to fit your situation and that we’re confident you’ll qualify for a mortgage for up to a certain amount.

Pre-Qualification Power

Various benefits open to you when you’ve found your dream house, and have pre-qualification. The first is that you will be sure the amount you will be able to afford when putting together the offer. Even more important to the seller of the home, your pre-qualification gives them certainty – as if you had entered their home with a bag of cash to make the offer! They need not be concerned that they’re wasting their time if you will not be able to qualify for a big enough mortgage. The seller of the home won’t wonder if he can count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount won’t cause them concern. You’ll have the sway of a buyer ready to make the purchase right now!
