Even if you have not researched homes to visit yet, it's valuable to visit with your mortgage pro early. Why? It may be hard to understand the ways we can help even before you begin to calculate your offer.


When we pre-qualify you, we help you find out the amount in monthly payments you can fit in your budget, and how much we of a loan you will qualify for. In this process, we explore your ability to borrow - looking at your employment, available money for down payment, debt, income, and other circumstances. We will ask for a minimum amount of paperwork, with a short,basic process.

When you qualify, we present to you a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might refer to it as a "pre-qual"), which states that we are helping you to find the best mortgage loan to meet your needs and that we are confident you'll qualify for a loan for a certain amount.
