Take Advantage of Loan Pre-Qualification

The Advantages

Know how much house you can afford.
Know how much cash you will need for the down payment.
Simplifies pre-approval.

A number of factors determine the price range of homes you'll want to preview - one of these factors is loan pre-qualification.

As your agent, I will help you pre-qualify. Items considered when pre-qualifying for a mortgage loan include:

  • Employment History
  • Credit History and Scores  
  • Monthly Income and Expenses

With my knowledge of the mortgage market, I'll help you make an informed decision as to the type of loan you'll want. There are many different types of loans to consider - FHA, VA, Conventional and even Bad Credit Loans. We'll find the best loan for your situation.

Stressed out about applying for a mortgage? You don't have to be. I have close professional relationships with various lending companies in the area, and they've helped me recognize a few things that make the loan application process effortless.



1 – Assemble a list of questions about your loan program

Make sure to bring a list of questions with you if you find that you do not thoroughly understand the advantages and disadvantages of the different loan programs. It is often a challenge to know the distinctions between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my lender contacts can assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both.

2 – Determine when you want to lock

By locking in an interest rate, the mortgage lender is keeping to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – most often at the time the loan application is sent in. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between the day of your loan application and the issuing of closing documents. Those who opt to float presume that the interest rates will plunge in the near future.

3 – Determine if you want to pay additional points to lower your interest rate

If you choose to pay additional points to lower the rate of your loan, you'll pay for them in cash at the time of closing. Each point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan. If you're undecided on whether or not buying points is the best option for you, click here to use our points calculator.

4 – Bring your paperwork

Acquiring a loan requires lots of paperwork, so you should take some time to get all your documentation together. Click here to preview general questions you'll have to answer on a loan app.
