It's helpful to bring in your mortgage loan professional early — even before you've started to consider neighborhoods. Why? If you don't yet know how much home you want to qualify for, what could we help you with?


Our mortgage professionals will help you calculate how much of a loan you can qualify for and the monthly payment amount you can afford by helping you pre-qualify. We will accomplish this by considering your debts and income, your employment and residence situations, your funds available for down payment, required reserves, and some other things. We require a minimum amount of paperwork, with a quick process.

Once you qualify, we give you a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent may call it a "pre-qual"), that documents the fact that we are working with you to find the right mortgage to meet your needs and that we are confident you will qualify for a mortgage loan for up to a specific amount.

Pre-Qualification Power

Holding your pre-qualification letter, some advantages fall at your feet once you find the house you want to put together an offer for. First, it lets you know how much you can offer.

They will not need to be concerned that they are wasting their time if you won't be able to be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller of the home won't be concerned that he won't be able to trust you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for your needed mortgage loan amount will not cause them concern. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your ability to back up your offer.
