What is a Pre-Approved Mortgage?
A pre-approved mortgage gets you one step further to purchasing your home. It’s a written statement that indicates that you qualify for a mortgage loan. It will specify a term, interest rate, and mortgage rate for which you’re eligible. The estimated mortgage loan amount from the lender will put into perspective a preview of your regular mortgage payments allowing you to plan better. With a pre-approval, you can explore the housing market confidently, knowing what you can afford.
The brokers at The Mortgage Specialists have been matching people with lenders for years. We offer unbiased advice and options to help you make better decisions.

What’s the Difference Between Pre-Qualified and Pre-Approved Mortgage?
Mortgage pre-qualification and pre-approval are the first two steps toward property purchasing. To pre-qualify for a mortgage, you will need to fill in necessary information before receiving an approximate, no-guaranteed estimate from a lender. You’ll typically receive a document stating whether you qualify for a mortgage and for how much, within one to three days. A mortgage pre-approval is a slightly more involved process. It involves filling out an official mortgage application for a lender’s consideration.
Typically, an application will require the following information:
- Proof of current salary or wage
- Proof of employment
- Asset information (properties, cars, other possessions)
- Expense information
- Debt information (loans, lines of credit, other financial obligations)
- Stated proof of ability to pay closing costs and down payment
- Credit standing
As a result of the pre-approval, you will be presented with a conditional monetary figure stating how much will be lent to you. Depending on the lender, you could even lock-in your interest rate.

We work with countless lenders in order to find customized mortgage products and plans. We will help you in finding the most competitive and affordable options available to you. Plan your financial future with the comprehensive mortgage services of The Mortgage Specialists.
Do Mortgage Pre-Approvals Affect Credit Score?
Applying for a mortgage pre-approval is considered a “hard” credit inquiry. Too many hard credit inquiries will affect your credit score negatively. Fortunately, when you apply for several mortgage inquiries within a two-week timeframe, these are only counted as one hard inquiry.
Each of our brokers has the experience, educational background, and credentials to provide outstanding guidance. We simplify the mortgage pre-approval process, helping you navigate technical jargon and procedures to streamline your application process, ensuring that you avoid multiple hard hits on your credit score.
You can depend on our skillful precision and market insights to assist you in making this important investment.
