In today's world of Real Estate there are many different options for financing a new home. We have designed our web site to try and give you as much information regarding the various types of mortgages as possible. As we lead you through the process, you will have a better understanding of how different mortgages work as well as a brief description of each of the most common types of mortgages. When buying a home you need to make certain you will qualify and be APPROVED for your new home loan by your lender. Many sellers will not accept an offer on their home without a good PRE-APPROVAL letter which meets the terms of the Spokane Multiple Listing Service standard Real Estate Purchase and Sale Agreement. Sometimes sellers will not remove their home from the market until they have been provided with a written letter from the buyer's lender stating the buyer has been PRE-APPROVED for their loan. This is also why it is critical from a buyer's standpoint to meet with a reliable Lender from the start of their home search process to ensure that they will be receiving financing and will not risk losing their perfect home to an already PRE-APPROVED buyer.Lets take a look at what a PRE-APPROVED buyer is in comparison to a PRE-QUALIFIED buyer. There is a big difference so look at both definitions closely.
The lender has reviewed the buyer's formal written mortgage application and financial records, completed a satisfactory credit report, and then approves the buyer for a specific loan amount. This approval is subject to a satisfactory appraisal of the property and title report.
The lender takes the buyer's income, down payment, and employment background and will then qualify the buyer as an approvable buyer, contingent upon the lender approving the buyer's completed application including a satisfactory credit report and employment verifications etc.
