Today’s real estate market moves swiftly. Often, buyers find they need to act quickly to avoid missing out on their perfect home. In today’s market, sellers are receiving multiple offers, allowing them the luxury of choosing an offer that’s to their exact liking. So, what can buyers do to increase their chances of enticing sellers with their offers?
The Benefits of Mortgage Pre-Approval
How Much House Can You Afford?
Buying a home doesn’t begin with looking at the area’s real estate listings. It begins, as with most things, with financing. With a mortgage pre-approval in hand, you’ll know what you can afford. Much of the waiting involved in choosing and obtaining a loan will be behind you as you search for your perfect home. You’ll still have a short wait when your actual loan goes through underwriting. However, as long as you don’t make any changes to your financial status, the loan application process is much shorter if you’ve already been pre-approved. Best of all? By being pre-approved when you make an offer on a home, you’ve given that offer its best chance to be accepted. In today’s fast-paced real estate market, that’s no small advantage.
