Pre-qualifying, Pre-approval and Financing
Finding a home and buying a home are two very separate things. Buying a home starts with getting your financial house in order. Getting pre-qualified shows sellers that you are a buyer who can qualify for financing and it helps you establish a clear price range for buying a home.
Pre-qualification is not a full mortgage approval, but a basic estimate of what you can afford in a home loan. Pre-qualification is sometimes confused with pre-approval, which is a more comprehensive analysis and commitment of a loan program for a buyer.
Simplify your loan process and get pre-qualified for a home loan. Along with the down payment available to you, the loan amount will determine what price range will work for you. Pre-qualifying helps you identify and resolve any issues you may encounter in your loan application.
