Financing FAQs

  • What is the difference between pre-approval and pre-qualification for a loan?
    Pre-qualification is a non-binding process in which you provide preliminary information concerning your income, monthly dues, and assets, so the lender can estimate how much you may qualify to borrow; your pre-qualified sum is not a guaranteed figure. Pre-approval is a more in-depth examination of your finances and current credit rating to determine if you really qualify for the loan and/or maximum amount the lender is willing to loan you. You must provide the lender with documentation that verifies your residential history, employment, income, assets, and personal debt. The lender will also ask to pull your credit report to check your creditworthiness. Your pre-approval letter is the lender’s written commitment to give you the loan, and when you make an offer on a new home, you submit your pre-approval letter as well.
  • I just started looking at homes. Is it too early to get pre-approved or pre-qualified for a loan?
    The best time to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a loan is before you start looking at homes. This will give you time to correct credit problems, eliminate debt, and budget. Also, you will eliminate disappointment, as you learn how much home you can really afford, and thus refine your new home search. Then, if you are a contender for a home with multiple offers, a pre-approval letter gives you more weight with the seller because you guarantee them you will be able to pay the sale price.
  • When I am ready to buy a home, am I obligated to work with the lender who pre-approved or pre-qualified my loan?
    You are not obligated to complete the mortgage process with the lender who issued you a pre-qualification or pre-approval letter. Actually, it is better to get multiple quotes from different lenders so you can find a loaning option that best fits your finance needs. However, each time a lender pulls your credit report for pre-approval, this creates a hard inquiry, which hurts your credit score. Credit bureaus will extend some leniency if you are shopping for a mortgage; if multiple inquiries are pulled in a focused period of 14 to 45 days, the bureaus will view it as a single credit pull.
