Step 4: Get Pre-Qualified

Get Pre-qualified

Getting pre-qualified is like getting an estimate from a mortgage institution detailing how much of a loan you can likely afford. Pre-qualification is based on the information you give the lender about your income, your assets, and your liabilities, and serves more as a guide to you of what a lender might require rather than as any official approval by them.

Getting Pre-Qualified

With a few clicks of your mouse, you can pre-qualify yourself for a loan.

Getting Pre-Approved

When you find your dream home, you can present the seller with your pre-approved loan document, showing them that not only are you serious about buying their house, but you've already been pre-approved for financing.

It could make the difference between getting the house you want or watching some other bidder step in with a pre-approved loan and snatch that house away. Pre-approval is good for 120 days and depends on the appropriateness of the property you want to purchase. Fees, like credit reports may apply.
