Importance Of Getting Preapproved When Buying A Home

The importance of obtaining a mortgage pre-approval before buying a home is a simple fact. That is, most real estate professionals will not work with buyers who haven't already been pre-approved because there's no way to know their price range.

Real estate professionals will ask how much your loan is for and also inquire as to your comfort level, or your own budget. If you do not have pre-approval from a bank, credit union, or mortgage broker, you won't have a true idea of what you can afford and what you can't. Although this sounds relatively straightforward and very much in line with common sense, a significant number of would-be buyers try to skip pre-approval because they do not want to go through the documentation and vetting process. Here are some more reasons you need to be pre-approved for a mortgage before you start shopping for a house to buy:
  1. You can't make an offer. That's right unless you have cash for a purchase, no seller will accept an offer from someone who isn't pre-approved for at least their asking price or more.
  2. You can't get insurance. When you purchase a property with a home loan, the lender will require your insurance unless you put a substantial percentage down. So, if you aren't pre-approved for a mortgage already, you'll have no way of obtaining preliminary insurance which means you can't buy a house.
  3. You can't buy a house with a pre-qualification letter. Although some lenders do offer pre-qualification as the initial step in the mortgage approval process, this isn't enough to let you go house hunting. A pre-qualification is a very cursory overview of your financial situation and is not the same as a pre-approval.
  4. You might not qualify for the amount you believe. Even if there is some far-fetched scenario where you could actually make an offer that is accepted (which won't happen without a pre-approval), you'll still have to go through the process and might discover that you can't afford the property in this imaginary situation.
