When you’re buying a home, you need to have a strong mortgage lender involved to make sure that you get the best rate on the right loan. You won’t get that Googling mortgage rates and using a mortgage calculator that tells you how much home you can afford. You have to get into the numbers with a real mortgage professional that will tell you the truth and tell you how much you can afford. Don’t do your mortgage by yourself. Get pre-approved by a strong mortgage lender.
A mortgage pre-approval is the first step on the road to home ownership. You need to have a professional look through your financial history and determine how much home you can afford to pay for to help keep you from getting in over your head. While a mortgage calculator can tell you how much your salary can afford, it doesn’t take into account your other debts, inflation, and everything else that goes into a real household budget. Your debt-to-income ratio is something that has to be used in the determination as well, as it shows how well you can make a payment.
Getting a mortgage pre-approval is like putting gold in your pocket. You get the knowledge that you can make an offer on the home you want, and you tell the seller that you are serious and ready to make a deal. You immediately become a committed buyer with real buying power.
The Home Loan Expert can get your pre-approval in 5 minutes over the phone if you’re ready with paperwork. Gather the following:
