Why a PreApproval is Important
In this competitive housing market, realtors will often ask their clients for a "pre-approval letter" from a mortgage lender before the house hunting begins. This letter can be generated by your loan officer after a brief consultation to understand your particular financial needs. The letter from the loan officer will indicate the maximum loan amount that you are "pre-approved" for based on your income, credit score, monthly debts, and preferred down payment.
With so many buyers in the market, real estate agents request this letter for 2 reasons. First, it shows that you are serious about homeownership and have the right combination of credit, savings, and income to afford a new home. The letter also helps your agent to show you homes that make sense for your price range.
