Getting prequalified before making an offer is an extremely important part of the mortgage process. Understanding the price range of homes you are able to afford will help your Loan Officer and Realtor guide you to the right properties, making certain you feel comfortable with the process.
And, just because you might qualify for a certain payment, does not necessarily mean you would be comfortable with that payment. Your lifestyle plays a huge role in determining what you want to do. Other factors such as vacations or dining out, although not part of the approval process, are things you must take into consideration when purchasing a home.
Mortgage companies use ratios to determine how much a borrower qualifies for. Ratios can vary based on the underwriter or the particular mortgage product for which you are getting approval.
There are even some instances where you might qualify for more than the guidelines allow because you have compensating factors (i.e. additional savings, larger downpayment, etc.)
Please consult one of our mortgage professionals to determine what you can be prequalified for!
