I'm gonna talk to you about why it's so important to be pre-approved for a loan before you start looking for a home.
First, imagine walking in this charming home you can smell the salt in the air is only a block and a half from the ocean you walk in and you're taken back by the flow of the home you walk around for a bit, and when you enter the master bedroom you're officially in love, here's where we run into problems....You approach me that you want to put in an offer, then when you seek the pre-approval the amount you're approved for is not as much as you thought, or the type of loan you have does not meet the sellers requirements, this sequence of events can be devastating and could have been avoided by just getting a pre-approval before you started your search.
Ok, so now you're approved, now you know exactly what homes we can target, also sometimes in a pre-approval you realize that you're actually approved for more than you thought, and enables you to broaden your horizons.
When it comes to fulfilling those must-haves on the agent side this empowers me, because it gives us solid leverage in a multiple offer situation, if we have a pre-approval letter, and another buyer doesn't have that, the soldiers don't want to work with us because we have a full pre-approval and that's much stronger!
