Even if you've not so much as picked out homes to visit yet, it is advantageous to see your mortgage professional first. What for? When you do not know yet how much home you want to qualify for, what can we help you with?


We will help you determine how much of a loan you can qualify for and the mortgage payment amount you are able to afford by getting you pre-qualified. We can do this by considering your income and debts, your employment and residence situations, your funds available for down payment, required reserves, and other financial considerations. We require a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.

Once you are determined to be eligible, we prove our confidence in your ability to qualify for a mortgage loan by awarding you a Pre-Qualification Letter (also called a "pre-qual").

Power in the Pre-Qual

Various beneifits open to you once you have found your new house, and have achieved pre-qualification power. First, you have some concrete numbers in mind, as the total you can borrow. Even more important to the seller of the house, your pre-qualification letter gives them confidence - as if you had arrived at their home with a big box of cash to make the offer! They will not have to be concerned they are wasting their time if you do not be able to qualify for a big enough mortgage. The seller of the home won't be concerned that he can't trust you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you will need.Your qualifying for your needed mortgage loan amount won't be something for them to worry about. You have the ability to back up your offer.
