In the process, we determine your borrowing power - analyzing your job, money available for down payment, debts, income, and other areas. It's quick and basic; We keep the paperwork light.

Once you qualify, will give you what's called a Pre-Qualification Letter (your real estate agent might call it a "pre-qual"), that states that we are helping you to find the best mortgage loan program to meet your needs and that we are confident you'll qualify for a mortgage loan for a certain amount.
