Determining Your Financial Qualifications
In recent times, lenders have geared up to provide pre-qualification or pre-approval to buyers (usually subject to certain conditions). It makes good sense for a purchaser to establish him or herself as a strong buyer by getting the financing in line before starting to look at property. Ultimately, doing so may enable the buyer to be viewed more favorably by the seller during the offer process. For many buyers, going through the pre-qualification process enables them to know what the maximum amount of mortgage they can qualify for and what their monthly mortgage payments will be. Once a buyer has a fix on the financial coordination necessary for his/her individual situation, the next two basic steps are setting a timetable and establishing general parameters for the type of residence one is seeking (price range, location, style, amenities, et cetera). This done, the fun begins.
