Should you get pre-qualified or pre-approved?  What is the difference?  Which is better?

What to Bring to Your Application

In order to pre-qualify for a mortgage loan, clients supply a lender with general information regarding their income, debt, assets and credit.  Clients are then given an approximate amount for which they may qualify.  It's not a guarantee and is not necessary, but it is a quick easy way to find out how much home to shop for.  


A pre-approval gives clients an exact amount after a formal loan application is made.  It's more in-depth than pre-qualifying and also speeds the closing process.


If you find your dream home and are caught in a bidding war, having your financing in place and a pre-approval letter in hand gives you a much better chance of success.  It shows the seller you are serious
