Purchasing a home is a very exciting time, and being well prepared will help you make better decisions. The first step is to ask yourself “am I ready to buy?” If you are ready to buy you need to be pre-qualified. The pre-qualification process ensures there will be no hang-ups once you execute a sales contract.
Before you go looking for a home, you should go through the pre-qualification process. This will ensure you are financially sound, according to lending guidelines set by FNMA, FHLMC and GNMA. In most areas, you are not able to bid on a property without a pre-qualification letter from a lender. Getting pre-qualified lets everyone know you are a knowledgeable and serious buyer. Once we receive the required documentation we will have your pre-qualification letter to you within 24-hours when approved.
During the Pre-Qualification process our mortgage experts will guide you through the home buying process and educate you on the different loan options available based on your financial goals.
