It can be helpful to visit with a mortgage loan pro early, even if you haven't settled on what type of home you hope to find. Why? Maybe it's hard to understand the ways we can help even before you begin to negotiate.

We Can Help You Pre-Qualify

We can help you calculate how much of a mortgage you can afford, and the amount of money you can borrow, by walking you through the pre-qualification process. In this process, we look at your borrowing power - analyzing your earning status, money available for down payment, debt, income, and other circumstances. We will ask for a minimum amount of paperwork, with a quick process.

At the point you are considered eligible, we document our confidence in your ability to qualify for a loan by awarding you a Pre-Qualification Letter (also known as a "pre-qual").

Pre-Qualification Power

Armed with your pre-qualification letter, some advantages fall at your feet at the point you find the house you want to put together an offer on. First of all, you have some definite numbers in mind, as the total you will qualify for with your mortgage loan. Even more important to the seller of the house, your pre-qualification status gives them certainty - as if you had entered their house with a suitcase of cash to make the offer! They will not need to worry that that they are wasting their time if you won't be able to be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller won't wonder if he can count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount will not cause them concern. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your buying power.
