Pre-Qualification & Pre-Approval

Pre-Qualification &  Pre-Approval

Here's the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval: during the mortgage application process, you will speak with a lender (or maybe several as you shop around for the best loan options). During your initial conversation, your lender is going to ask you a series of questions about your financial situation. During that conversation, they will let you know approximately how much mortgage they think that you'll qualify for and what the top of your price range should be during the house-hunting process. This is your pre-qualification, not pre-approval.

Your pre-approval will take place once your lender runs your credit score, checks bank statements, verifies employment and reviews proof of assets or investments (every situation is a little bit different). It is important to know the distinction because unless you have an official pre-approval letter signed by your lender in-hand, you are not pre-approved.

In this competitive market, it's crucial to submit a pre-approval letter with your offer and the last thing I would want is for you to miss out on your home because of a little confusion. If you are ready to get pre-qualified or pre-approved, just DM me and I'll refer you to one of my lender partners for initial conversation.
