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. This process walks you through your financial situation - your debts, income, career, and cash available for down payment, among other things. We require a minimum amount of paperwork, with a short,basic process.
When you qualify, we give you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might refer to it as a "pre-qual"), that documents the fact 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 for a certain amount.
Various advantages open to you after you have found your new house, and have pre-qualification. The first is that you will be sure what you can afford when calculating your offer.
Even more important to the current owner, your pre-qualification status gives them confidence - as if you had arrived at their home with a big box of cash to back up the offer!

The seller won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you will need.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount won't cause them concern. You will have the influence of a buyer ready to make the purchase on the spot!
