What’s the Difference Between
Pre-qualification and Pre-approval?
Although pre-qualification and pre-approval are sometimes used interchangeably, it’s important to know the difference and when you’ll need them during your home buying journey.
Before you begin your house hunt, it’s important to get pre-qualified. It quickly helps you (and your agent) determine your budget so you can shop for the home of your dreams with confidence. A pre-qualification entails:
- A preliminary review of your financial information
- No documentation needed
- Quickly identifies what you can afford
In just a couple of minutes we can provide you with your pre-qualification. Let the shopping begin!
Once you have found your dream home, get a pre-approval. This shows that you are serious about submitting an offer and ready to move on to the loan application process. Obtaining a pre-approval includes:
- A thorough review of your finances
- Submitting full documentation (such as employment history, credit information, bank statements and tax returns)
- An approval of a specific loan amount
Once all the information is submitted, we will provide your pre-approval within 24 hours on the next business day.
