THE MORTGAGE PRE APPROVAL PROCESS
A Mortgage pre approval can help you understand how much you can afford when buying a home. An approval is one of the first steps in the home buying process, making the searching for your home easier because you will have the confidence of knowing what you are able to purchase.
Before you start your home search, a pre-approval is always a good idea as it will provide you with the basis and foundation for your home search. We generally can review your application and have an answer for you within 24 hours.
A mortgage pre approval will also protect you from any sudden mortgage rate increases because the rate can be held for up to 120 days for most lenders giving you plenty of time to find that perfect home. On the other hand, if rates go down by the time you have an accepted offer then we check the market for the best mortgage and rate for you at the time. Either way, you are protected, and you can proceed with shopping for your home or investment with assurance and confidence. We are also available should you find a home that you want to put an offer on and need us to look at the numbers before committing to the offer or purchase.
