We can help determine how much of a mortgage loan you can afford, and how much money you can borrow, by taking you through the pre-qualification process. In the process, we determine your capacity to borrow - analyzing your job, money available for down payment, debts, income, and other areas. It's quick and to the point; We take pride in keeping the paperwork to a minimum.

At the point you are determined to be eligible, we document our confidence in your ability to qualify for a mortgage loan by presenting you with a Pre-Qualification Letter (also known as a "pre-qual").

Pre-Qualification Power

First, you have some general numbers in mind, as the amount you can borrow. Even more important to the present owner, your pre-qualification gives them confidence - as if you'd arrived at their house with a suitcase of cash to back up the offer! They won't need to worry that that they have been wasting their time if you do not have the ability to qualify for a high enough mortgage loan. The seller won't be concerned that he can't count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary mortgage loan amount won't be something for them to fret over. You have the capability to back up your offer.
