Top 3 Reasons to Get Pre-Approved for a Hilton Head Mortgage

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Financing and Hilton Head Properties, Hilton Head Main

Hilton Head Proeprties R and RBefore you start your Hilton Head property search, you want to know how much you can afford, right?  There are two ways to do this: with a mortgage pre-qualification and a mortgage pre-approval. As a Hilton Head buyer, the pre-approval is more valuable to you during your property search.  Here’s why.

How Pre-Approvals Help Hilton Head Buyers

One of the main differences between mortgage pre-qualification and mortgage pre-approval is how the lender gives you the mortgage amount.

calculator and finance sheetFor pre-qualification, you give the mortgage lender your general financial history (including debts and income), and the lender gives you a mortgage estimate. For pre-approval, the lender digs deep into your credit report and gives you the exact loan amount.

If you’re choosing between getting pre-qualified for a home mortgage and getting pre-approved, choose to get pre-approved. Here are the top three reasons why:

3. Shop for Hilton Head Real Estate with a check in your pocket!

There are no estimates in a pre-approval. The lender has looked into your credit history and you’ve given the required documentation to go through with the pre-approval process.  A mortgage pre-approval is not a commitment to the loan, but it paves the way to transition into applying for a specific property — your dream home in your price range.

2.  You Can Narrow Your Hilton Head Property Search

When you’re pre-approved, you’ll know exactly what you can afford, and you can tailor your property search around the mortgage amount. Now you can easily search through the listings with confidence and knowledge on what you can afford.

1. Hilton Head Sellers Will Take Your Offer Seriously

Hilton Head sellers like to see that you’re pre-approved — it tells them that you’re serious about buying their property.  In fact, when you’re competing with other buyers to make the best offer on your dream property, being pre-approved will give you the competitive edge over buyers who are not.
