Why You Need A Pre-Approval Letter

Have you obtained pre-approval for your new home loan? If you haven’t already done so, now is probably the perfect time to pre-qualify. How is this important you many ask? Let’s examine this from the point of the seller;  If two buyers are ready to make an offer for full price of your home and one buyer has a pre-approval letter already and one promises to bring it in later in the day who would you pick?

It is also important that you distinguish between a pre-qualification letter and a pre-approval. A pre-qualification letter is easy and can be provided quickly by providing some financial information over the phone to your lending institution. However, a pre-approval letter would involve verification of the information you are providing and this is what the seller would trust in comparison to the pre-qualification letter. Your pre-approval letter also signals to your real estate professional that you are serious about buying your house.
