Pre-Qualification Process: This process takes place with a member of the Coffman Team or a loan officer. Information is gathered about your job history, finances, income, debt, and savings. Standard guidelines are used to determine which of the loan programs would best fit your needs and that you will qualify for.
Qualified: You may say that you are qualified if you meet the standard guidelines.
Pre-Approval Process: The information that was gathered in the Pre- Qualification Process is given to the loan officer and your Credit Report is pulled from a credit-reporting agency. This allows the lender to see your full financial picture. You will be given a letter from the lender saying that you are Pre-Approved if you meet the lenders requirements for the type of loan you applied for. Many of these Pre-Approvals letters contain “conditions”. A condition is an item that may need to be cleared up before the lender can issue a “final approval”. Most all Pre-Approval Letters contain the conditions; subject to a satisfactory appraisal and title exam.
Approval: Once the lender has the appraisal and the title exam, they can tell you that you are approved to purchase that particular property. It is possible that you are approved, but the property is not due to a short appraisal or a cloud on the title.
