Quick Mortgage Pre-Approval
A pre-approval will determine how much you can spend!
Why you should get pre-approved…
The first step in the home buying process is to obtain a mortgage preapproval from a bank or lender. A pre-approval is simply a rate hold, typically for 120 days. This allows you to shop for a home without the risk of interest rate changes. The pre-approval also provides you with a purchase price for which you can shop. One of our mortgage brokers will help you acquire the pre-approval so you are confident you have the best product.
