Get pre-approved before listing your home. . . . here’s why

Before you list your current home for sale, it’s smart to ensure you are prepared to move into your next home. Becoming pre-approved for a mortgage, or st least starting the process, is an important part of that process.

Note, becoming pre-approved is a longer process than being pre-qualified. It requires more documentation, and will help your lender narrow in on a specific amount you will be approved for under specific conditions.

Your credit will be examined when you get a pre-approval for a home, resulting in a hard inquiry on your report. But, it will tell you and your lender if you qualify for the type of home you seek.

Getting pre-approved enables you to get ahead on your home search, with a competitive edge while I work to sell your home. You can begin narrowing down your ideal neighborhoods and dreaming about your next home with a price range in mind.

Lastly, Doing the work upfront and getting it all done will free up time and prevent a  headache once we get an offer on your home. Getting pre-approved in advance will allow for the stress to be reduced since you wont have to worry about it. We can just focus on House shopping, and enjoying that process.
