Get Pre-qualified for a Mortgage BEFORE You Start Actively Shopping for Properties:
Obtaining financing is one of the most critical parts of a real estate transaction. As a buyer, it is important to do your research and get pre-qualified BEFORE you start actively looking at properties. Getting pre-qualified is important because it saves you time by allowing you to focus on properties you know you can afford. In addition, it helps your offer to be accepted over other offers from non-qualified buyers, because then the seller will know he is not wasting time negotiating with you. Sellers don’t want to waste their time if you truly cannot afford to buy the property being offered.
To get more information about pre-qualification and mortgages, go to our Mortgage Information Resource Page.
