Talk with a mortgage professional about pre-qualification

When you pre-qualify for a home loan, you gain confidence and negotiating power for several reasons:

  1. You know how much you can borrow, so you don't waste time looking at properties you can't afford
  2. You have an edge when you make an offer, because the seller knows you're likely to get a loan and close the deal
  3. You save time on closing your loan, because you've already assembled your paperwork
