Advantages of Loan Pre-Approval

Before you start shopping for a home, you need to work with a lender to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Pre-approval is basically a promise from the lender that you’re qualified to borrow up to a certain amount of money at a specific interest rate. This promise is subject to a property appraisal and other conditions. In the pre-approval process, the lender looks closely at your credit and verifies your income (as opposed to pre-qualification, for which your information is not verified). The lender then gives you a pre-approval letter, which says that your loan will be approved once you make a purchase offer on a home, and once you submit the following documents – the purchase contract, the preliminary title information, the appraisal, and your income and asset documentation. Pre-approval means that the lender is confident that you can make the necessary down payment and that your income is sufficient to cover the mortgage payments.

  • Home loan pre-approval is free
  • Valid for up to 3 months
  • Enables you to go shopping for your home with confidence
  • Final unconditional finance approval is faster

Make Sure You Get Formal Pre-Approval

  • There are a number of different types of home loan pre-approval provided by lenders, from a simple short form pre-approval through to a formal written pre-approval.

    To be sure of your borrowing capacity you will need to secure a formal pre-approval. It is the only way to get the pre-approval you need to negotiate with confidence or bid at auction under almost the same conditions as a cash contract.

    A Secure Funding Group mortgage broker will help you secure home loan pre-approval so you can shop for your new home with confidence.
