Buyers get pre-qualified before looking at homes.
Buyers often want to start looking at homes, and they have an idea what they want to spend. They will call and ask for some listings to look through, and then they follow up with a call to go and see some of their favorite listings. It is understandable. They are excited and want to get started looking. But disappointment could be lurking.
First things first. Buyers get pre-qualified before looking at homes. The most important thing to do before going to see the homes is to see what you qualify for. It is especially hard to have to lower your expectations in housing after you have already decided you want to purchase homes in a higher price range, only to find out you cannot qualify that high. It is much easier on you to talk with a mortgage lender prior to “shopping” for a home so that you are looking at homes in a price range that you qualify for.
Many buyers who want to look first are often times disappointed to find out they cannot buy what they like so getting pre-qualified will save you a lot of disappointment. Again buyers get pre-qualified before looking at homes. You will be glad you did.
