Everything You Need to Know About
If you're thinking of buying a home in Central Ohio, your first step should be getting prequalified. Why? Simply put, because it's good to know (for certain) how much a bank is willing to lend you. You might have an idea of a monthly mortgage payment you can afford... but the bank might think differently. It's better to know what you're working with ahead of time!
Here's what you need to know about getting prequalified for a loan.
What is Mortgage Prequalification??
Simply put, getting prequalified for a mortgage means that you have a lender review your finances and give you a (soft) approval for a certain loan amount. During this process, the lender will collect some financial information from you (like income, assets, and debts) and let you know what loan options are available to you. They can also estimate your monthly payments based on different home prices, interest rates, and down payment amounts.
How to Get Prequalified
Getting prequalified is actually easier than you'd think. All you need is your phone, a few minutes, and some basic financial information!
