Are you pre-qualified or pre-approved for a loan?
Before you begin to shop for a new home, you should set up a time to meet with our team at Contemporary Mortgage Services, Inc. so we can figure out how much you can afford. This will put you in a better position as a buyer. That’s when it is important to understand the distinction between being pre-qualified for a loan, and pre-approved for a loan. The difference between the two terms will be crucial when you decide to make an offer on a house.
To get pre-qualified for a loan, we will collect information about your debt, income, and assets. We’ll look at your credit profile and assess goals for a down payment and get an idea of different loan programs that would work for you. We will issue you a pre-qualification letter indicating the amount you are pre-qualified to borrow.
