We Will Help You Pre-Qualify

When we pre-qualify you, we help you decide the amount in monthly mortgage payments you can afford, and how much we of a loan you will qualify for. The process walks you through your financial situation - your debt, income, career, and down payment money, among other things. It is a short, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

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

Power in the Pre-Qual

Some advantages open to you when you find your new house, and have pre-qualification power. First of all, you have some concrete numbers in mind, as the total you will qualify for with your mortgage. Even more important to the seller of the home, your pre-qualification status gives them certainty - as if you'd come into their house with a suitcase of cash to make the offer! They won't have to wonder if they are wasting their time if you do not have the ability to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you'll need.Your qualifying for your needed mortgage loan amount will not be something for them to be concerned about. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your ability to back up your offer.
