Is getting pre-approved for a mortgage important? Definitely! Getting pre-approved should be a vital step in your home-buying search. You can contact your financial institution, lenders or mortgage brokers to assist you with securing a pre-approval letter. The following are a few reasons why you should get pre-approved prior to heading out to open houses.
- Gives you a clear understanding of how much you may be able to afford on a property.
- Informs the seller that you are serious and ready to act compared to the rest of the competition.
- If you are not able to get pre-approved, it will inform you of what you need to work on to qualify for a loan in the future.
The pre-approval letter doesn’t mean you are guaranteed the loan, but is the first step in the whole loan-approval process. Be ready by gathering up tax records, pay stubs and bank statements should any additional information be needed. The process will be a lot smoother and with less headaches the better prepared you are today.
