Pre-approval and Pre-qualification letter

Friday, January 27, 2012 - Article by: Dharmesh Raheja - Financial Services - Message

These terms appear to be similar, but can be quite different. Not only do they cause confusion for home buyers, there seems to be many interpretations from those in the real estate and mortgage industry as well
Getting a pre-qualification letter is easy. You just call a mortgage broker or lender, provide some basic financial information, then wait a few minutes for the letter to come through your fax machine or in your email.

Pre-approval on the other hand really carries a lot of weight in the mortgage and real estate industry. In order to be pre-approved for a loan you must sit down with your preferred lender and provide them with documents such as tax returns, bank statements, and business licenses among others. Lenders will analyze these and other information gained by calling your employer and pulling your credit report.

Provide better service to your buyer clients, review their Mortgage Pre-Qualification letter with them, and don't be afraid to ask questions.
