Pre-Approval Checklist

Most buyers don't understand the difference between Pre-Qualification and Pre-Approval. The former is a less formal approach and means that the buyer has a good chance of getting the requested mortgage approved. The later means that a lender has committed to issue a home loan of a specific dollar amount based on an extensive application process.

 

Most Realtors will not take you to see a home unless you are preapproved. The above link will help you through this process, and give you an idea of what you will need to move forward with getting preapproved.
