Getting Pre-Approved Before Buying a Home
By Jason Deines

Buying a home for the first time can be stressful and full of surprises if you don’t know all that’s involved. Getting pre-approved for a home mortgage is a critical step in buying a home. By getting pre-approved for a home mortgage you can save yourself time and embarrassment.Home Financing - Salt Lake City, Utah

The home mortgage process can be time consuming and tedious. Finding the best interest rate and monthly payment that fits into your budget takes patience. Shopping and comparing mortgage companies provides a home buyer in the real estate market more options to choose from. Starting the process early provides lenders with the opportunity to catch and fix any potential credit problems that may prevent you from getting the lowest interest possible or even worse, having your mortgage application denied.

An additional benefit of getting pre-approved for a home mortgage is that it sets the price for the home you can afford. Depending on your financial situation this may be somewhat of an unknown. The pre-approval process brings it out in the open. Ten to fifteen thousand dollars can make a substantial difference in the amount of home you will end up with. Remember, there are other costs associated with buying a home. Don’t waste time looking at homes that you can not afford while building expectations and hopes that only get shattered when you find out you can’t acquire the lending for the home.

The real estate market is competitive and homes that are priced right tend to sell quickly. By getting pre-approved for a home mortgage enables you to act quickly when you find the home for you. It also shows the sellers and real estate agents that you are serious about buying a home. When you do find a home that you want to buy being pre-approved also speeds up the closing process.

Resolving any potential problems before you find your dream home saves you time and money in the end. Don’t get caught off guard by not being prepared. Imagine the time you will save when you only view homes that fit your budget.
