Before You Start Shopping For Property,
Get A Pre-Approved Mortgage First!
Use These Simple Tips
Obtaining a pre-approval for a mortgage loan is one of the most important stages that you need to accomplish to buy a property. When you get pre-approved for a loan, you find out how much loan you can avail of, and this will help you determine your budget for buying a house. These steps will help you get a mortgage pre-approval so that you can start getting serious about house buying.
- Make sure that you start looking for a mortgage lender even before you begin looking at houses on the market to know your budget. Go to as many as three lenders so that you can get a picture of the various loan options you can choose from.
- every time that you visit a lender, make sure to bring with you an organized file containing your financial history. The way that you have been managing your finances in the past years, as seen in documents like tax returns, pay stubs and bank statements, will let a lender know how responsible you will be in paying off your mortgage loan should they approve it.
- Prior to making a selection, be absolutely certain that your lenders are only those that are trustworthy and reputable. If a seller finds out that the lender you chose has a tendency to not pay out a mortgage loan, they will refuse to sell their house to you. In addition, even if you get a pre-approval from one company, you can still get your actual loan from another lender, since a pre-approval is not binding and is only a guarantee that you will be able to get a loan.
- All mortgage pre-approvals are valid for only a specific period of time (usually about three months), so be sure that you have found a house by then. If you haven’t finalized your selection of a property, remember to ask your lender to revalidate your pre-approval. The importance of doing this is that it will serve as a reassurance to the seller that your financial condition has not suddenly changed from the date that your mortgage was pre-approved.
By getting a mortgage loan pre-approval, you can easily speed up your search for the real estate property you want. Home sellers and Real Estate Agents/Brokers will take this as a sign that you are earnest about finding the home of your dreams.
