Pre-approval vs. pre-qualification

It is important to understand the difference:  a pre-approval involves a full loan application, credit check, and Automate Underwriting Approval.  A pre-qualification involves a partial loan application and the lender's "best guess" of what you will qualify for.  We focus on full loan pre-approvals because this is what real estate agents and sellers require.  In fact, we take it one step further and recommend underwriting pre-approvals, where the initial pre-approval file is reviewed and approved by an underwriter.  Loan pre-approvals are completed within 48 hours and underwriting pre-approvals are completed within 5 days.

What to know

What is the process and what do I need to have ready?  The pre-approval process starts with a quick online or phone application (10-15 minutes).  Once the application is complete, we will finish the pre-approval within 48 hours.  Please have your general information available, including social security number, employment history, income, and reserve account balances (checking, savings, retirement).
