Pre-Approval Program

One of the 1s things that you must do is get

                  Pre-Qualified

 

Pre-Qualification entails making a complete application, ordering the credit reports, verifications and everything for the borrower.

 

The Mortgage Company will issue a commitment subject to a specific interest rate and points and the satisfactory appraisal when a property is located.

 

There is usually a time limit placed on pre-approval commitments.  You´ll want to be ready to look at homes and make a decision after you receive your pre-approval commitment.

 

There are several distinct advantages to becoming pre-approved:

 

You look at only the “right” homes means looking at homes you can afford.  Why be disappointed choosing a home that you may not be able to afford.

 

You save money dealing with a seller who is comfortable about “tying up” their home with a party who has a definite loan commitment.  This is one less contingency for the seller to be concerned with.

 

You close more quickly because in most cases, the thing that takes the most time is getting a mortgage.  The credit reports and all of the verifications take time to be mailed out and returned.

 

You Minimize Stress of not knowing whether or not you qualify.
