Prequalification vs. Preapproval
Although they may be used interchangeably by some, a prequalification is not the same as a preapproval. Initially, buyers may o btain a prequalification since it can be completed by simply making a phone call to a lender. The lender will gather basic informat ion regarding the buyer's overall debts, monthly expenses and income in order to identify an appropriate price range for a home to b uy. Whereas a prequalification is a good start, a preapproval is more concrete. The lender will have the buyer complete a loan app lication and provide documentation such as paystubs and income tax returns. When your real estate agent submits an offer on your b ehalf for a property to purchase, it is accompanied by a prequalification or preapproval letter in order to verify you are a qualifi ed buyer.
