Every lender handles mortgage approvals differently and many lenders use the terms 'prequalification' and 'preapproval' interchangeably, so it's important to understand each lender requirements. In Addition,
A prequalification or preapproval helps you (and a seller) estimate what you can afford. Pre-qualifications are often estimates that rely on self-reported information, while pre-approvals go more in depth by pulling credit scores, taxes, and other important information.
In a competitive market, you always want to get pre-approved or pre-qualified before you begin touring homes. Being prepared with a pre-approval letter allows you to put in offers wuickly and shows the sellers you are serious, and that a bank has deemed you financially able.
