Getting a Pre-Approval letter for a mortgage is an extremely helpful first step you can take to make yourself a top candidate for your dream property. What it means to get this letter is that a bank or lender has done a thorough check of your credit history and determined that they are willing to give you a mortgage. Here’s what you should prepare when starting your Pre-Approval:
- Income information – pay stubs, tax returns, and W-2s from the previous two years, as well as documents that show additional sources of income
- Asset information – bank account statements as well as information about investments you’ve made.
- Personal information – driver’s license or passport. You will need to provide your Social Security number for a credit check.
The Pre-Approval will benefit you by letting you know exactly how much you qualify for, thereby giving you a price range to stay in while you’re shopping for a property. Also, if you are shopping in a competitive market, having a pre-approval letter will make you a more attractive prospective buyer than those who do not have one. Perhaps the biggest positive to obtaining a pre-approval is the fact that once you find the property you really want, you’ll be able to proceed with the process quickly, as you’ve already got financing ready to go.
