It's valuable to consult with your mortgage loan professional early — even before you have begun narrowing down neighborhoods. What for? What can we do for you if you have not negotiated a price, and do not know yet the amount you need to borrow?


We will help you calculate how much of a mortgage you can afford, and how much money you can borrow, by walking you through the pre-qualification process. We will accomplish this by analyzing your income and debts, your employment and housing circumstances, your funds available for a down payment, required reserves, and some other things. We ask for a minimum amount of paperwork, and avoid a lengthy process.

Once you are determined to be eligible, we prove our confidence in your potential to qualify for a mortgage loan by awarding you a Pre-Qualification Letter (also known as a "pre-qual").

Power in the Pre-Qual

Holding your pre-qualification letter, several advantages are yours when you locate the home you want to make an offer on. The first is that you'll be sure the amount you will be able to afford when calculating the offer. Even more important to the seller of the home, your pre-qualification gives them certainty - as if you had come to their house with a suitcase of cash to make the offer! They won't have to worry that that they are wasting their time if you don't have the ability to qualify for a big enough mortgage. The seller of the home won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your mortgage in the amount you will need.Your qualifying for the necessary mortgage loan amount won't cause them concern. They have a virtual guarantee to trust your ability to back up your offer.
