Pre-approvals and why their so important?
Pre-approvals are not a definitive way to devise a working budget. A mortgage pre-approval provides a very accurate estimation as to what your lender feels your buying power is. The buying power you have is based on mortgage affordability and down payment- we advise our clients to have min 20% down before making any purchases to avoid high fees. Having this process done early reduces the stress, uncertainty, and time it takes to complete once we’ve found a property.
