Why pre-qualify?

We recommend our buyers get pre-qualified before beginning their home search. Knowing exactly how much you can comfortably spend on a home reduces the potential frustration of looking at homes beyond your means.  You will also need a written lender commitment in order to ratify a Sales Contract.
