 Why should you get pre-approved for a mortgage ?

Getting a pre-approved mortgage is a great way to get started. With a mortgage approval, you will be in a better position to negotiate with sellers. You will also be able to close on a property quicker than other buyers. This shows the seller how serious you are about the property, and it will make the seller more comfortable working with you. 

In a "seller's market," or where supplies are limited, a pre-approved mortgage is essential.
 

In a "buyer's market" the loans and loan qualifications are changing Monthly.
