Pre-Approval for Buying a Home

Why Is Pre-Approval Important When Buying A Home?


Pre-approval is a stronger commitment from a lender than a pre-qualification. So, by being pre-approved, you can have an edge when there are multiple offers on a home. This is likely to happen when the housing inventory is low.

Here is a basic list of what you may have to provide a lender in order to get pre-approved for a home loan.

  • Social Security Numbers for both you and your spouse if you are applying for the loan together. This allows the lender to run an accurate credit check.
  • Copies of your checking and savings account statements from the past 6 months.
  • Documentation of other assets you may have such as stocks or bonds.
  • A recent pay stub that shows your earnings
  • Contact information for your employer so it can be verified that you work there
  • Your last 2 years of  income tax returns.

Each lender may have different requirements for pre-approval. Contact The Gabbard Team to start the process. We can connect you with one of our preferred lenders.
