First off…what does the term “pre-approval” mean?
Pre-approval means that the lender is confident that you can make the necessary down payment and that your income is sufficient to cover the mortgage payments. At this stage, only one concern remains. The lender needs to make certain that the property’s value offers sufficient collateral in relation to the loan amount. In other words, the home must be appraised for an amount more than, or equal to, the purchase price.
When you’re ready to make a purchase offer, both your real estate agent and the seller will most likely want to see a pre-approval letter. This proves that you’re likely to be able to make the purchase and, therefore, you can be taken seriously. In a competitive housing market, sellers prefer a pre-approved buyer to those who, for all anyone knows, might be unable to close the deal. READ THE FULL POST HERE
