It can be valuable to see a mortgage professional early, even before you have determined what sort of home to search for. Why? What can we do for you before you have negotiated an amount, and don't know yet how much you need to borrow?


When we pre-qualify you, we help you determine how much of a monthly payment you can fit in your budget, and the loan amount you will qualify for. We accomplish this by considering your income and debts, your work and housing circumstances, the funds available for down payment, required reserves, and other financial considerations. We ask for a minimum amount of paperwork, with a quick process.

When you qualify, will give you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might refer to it as a "pre-qual"), which 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 up to a certain amount.

Power in the Pre-Qual

Armed with your pre-qualification letter, a number of advantages are yours once you find the house you want to make an offer on. The first is that you can know what you can afford when putting together your offer. Your pre-qualification can also make your offer more attractive to the home seller, as if you were bringing them a suitcase full of cash! They will not need to wonder if they have been wasting their time if you do not be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. 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 your needed mortgage loan amount won't cause them concern. You have the influence of a buyer ready to make the purchase right now!
