The Mortgage Pre-Approval Process

A Quick and Painless Process

One of the smartest things you can do before shopping for a home is to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Mortgage pre-approval gives you several benefits that can save you time and money.

First, when you get pre-approved, you’ll know exactly what kind of purchase price you can afford. This will help you narrow your housing search to only an existing home or newly constructed home that fits your budget. Second, mortgage pre-approval gives you negotiating power with sellers. They’ll know that you’re a serious buyer who is able to obtain financing, and this may give you an edge over other buyers who haven’t gone through the pre-approval process. Finally, having a mortgage pre-approval in hand often means that you can close on a home more quickly than if you were waiting for mortgage approval after making an offer. If you’re thinking about buying a home, be sure to get pre-approved for a mortgage first – it may be one of the best decisions you ever make.
