BUYERS - Get Pre-Qualified or Pre-Approved?

Blog Post Image

Are you considering buying a home soon? Then you’ll need to know the difference between pre-qualified vs pre-approved!

Pre-qualified means that you’ve met the basic requirements for a loan. You have a job, you make enough money to pay back the loan, and you have enough money in your bank account to put down as collateral if you need it.

Pre-approved means that your credit score and financial documents have been reviewed by a lender and they’ve decided that you’re good for the money! It’s literally like getting a stamp of approval: “This person is awesome; we’ll give them our money.”

Why is pre-approval better? Because it’s necessary to get a home loan, plus sellers will take your offer more seriously!
