It can be helpful to see a mortgage professional early, even if you haven't decided what type of home to search for. What for? If you don't yet know how much house you need to qualify for, how can we help?


We will help you calculate how much of a mortgage you can afford, and how much money you can borrow, by taking you through the pre-qualification process. We will accomplish this by analyzing your debts and income, your work and housing situations, the funds available for down payment, required reserves, and other financial considerations. It's short and to the point; We take pride in keeping the paperwork to a minimum.

After you qualify, will present to you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent may call it a "pre-qual"), that states that we are helping you to find the best mortgage loan to fit your financial needs and that we're confident you will qualify for a mortgage up to a certain amount.

Pre-Qualification Power

After you locate the house that catches your eye, and you decide to put together an offer, being pre-qualified for a mortgage loan will do several things. First, you have some definite numbers in mind, as the amount you will be able to borrow. More important to the home seller, your being pre-qualified is like your having entered their house with a suitcase full of money ready to make the deal! They won't need to be concerned that they're wasting their time if you will not be able to qualify for a high enough mortgage. The seller of the home won't wonder if he can count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary mortgage loan amount won't cause them concern. You have the ability to back your offer up.
