Getting pre-qualified for a mortgage is a smart first step.
Would you walk into a restaurant with no way to pay? Of course not. Likewise, you need to start shopping for your new home knowing exactly how much you can afford and how much you can borrow. Don’t wait until you’ve already fallen in love with a property. Talk to Zachery Adam at Prime Mortgage Lending, Inc. to get pre-qualified today, before you start house hunting.
At Prime Mortgage Lending, Inc. getting pre-qualified means running and evaluating your credit report, something that usually happens only when you want to pre-apply for a mortgage. It also means you will be asked to supply your loan officer with proof of your finances. Being so thorough now saves you time later in the process. It also gives you peace-of-mind because you can rely on the amount for which you pre-qualify.
So when you are pre-qualified for a mortgage at Prime Mortgage Lending, Inc. it’s worth more than a pre-qualification anywhere else. You still get a “pre-qualification letter” that tells you how much Prime Mortgage Lending, Inc. is willing to loan you, and the due diligence that went into that letter means you can make an offer on a home with confidence.
Pre-Approval vs. Pre-Qualification
Pre-qualification at any other lender, independent or not, often is just a rough guess at how much that institution would be willing to lend you. It guarantees nothing because pre-qualification usually is based on guesses about your income, debts and assets. Prime Mortgage Lending, Inc. asks you to substantiate that information upfront so that your pre-qualification means a lot more. They prefer to leave the guessing out of the equation.
Of course, you always have the option of completing the entire pre-approval process. It does position you as a serious, well-prepared homebuyer, which will impress many sellers and Realtors. But a pre-approval takes more time than a typical pre-qualification. Pre-approval goes through the same process and requires the same documents as actually applying for the loan, but without a specific property address identified.
