PRE-APPROVAL

What is a pre-approval? A pre-approval is a statement from your lender that says you are qualified to borrow up to a certain amount. This statement also includes a pre-approved interest rate, though this number can definitely change depending on how soon you put an offer on a home since mortgage rates can fluctuate. To come up with this promised loan amount, your lender will take in to consideration your debt to income ratio and your credit score.  

Providing your pre-approval letter to your realtor prior to viewing homes in person is a great way to narrow down your searches and find the perfect home for you.
