What is the benefit of being pre-approved?
Being pre-approved shows your real estate professional or builder that you are serious about moving forward and have already spoken with your financial institution about taking the proper steps in the home purchasing process.
The pre-approval letter will give indication that your credit has been reviewed, as well as your employment for income purposes and assets, to ensure that you can afford the home you would like to look at.
Why should I get a Preferred Pre-Approval?
The Preferred Pre-Approval provides confidence to the seller as you have already been fully qualified by a certified bank underwriter, with only needing appraisal and title in many cases to close. This makes a Preferred Pre-Approval the next best thing to a cash offer.
