Should I pre-qualify or get pre-approved? What's the difference?
You've probably heard that you should pre-qualify or get pre-approved for a mortgage if you're looking to buy property. These are two key steps in the mortgage application process. Some people use the terms interchangeably, but there are important differences that every homebuyer should understand. What's the difference? Pre-qualifying is just the first step. It gives you an idea of how much of a loan you'll likely qualify for. Pre-approval is the second step, a conditional commitment to actually grant you the mortgage.
For the pre-approval, you will need to fill out the 1003 application, which will take about 10 minutes of your time. It's best to do this from your home as you will need access to certain pertinent documents such as paystubs, if applicable, 401K, savings, personal information etc.
