We can 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 achieve this by analyzing your debts and income, your employment and residence circumstances, your funds available for down payment, required reserves, and other financial considerations. It's a quick, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

At the point you are considered eligible, we document our confidence in your ability to qualify for a mortgage loan by awarding you a Pre-Qualification Letter (also called a "pre-qual").

Buying Power

Armed with your pre-qualification letter, a number of advantages are yours at the point you find the house you want to put together an offer on. First, it lets you know how much you're able to offer. Of greater importance to the seller, your pre-qualification is like your having walked into their front door with a bag full of money ready to make the deal! They need not be concerned that they have been wasting their time if you won't be able to be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount won't be something for them to lose sleep over. You have the capability to back your offer up.
