The Importance of Pre-Qualification

Are you looking for a mortgage? We will be glad to assist you! Give us a call at (401) 583-4150. Ready to get started? Apply Here.

Even if you haven't so much as narrowed down houses to visit yet, it is valuable to contact your mortgage loan professional first. Why? What can we do for you if you haven't made your offer, and don't yet know how much you want to borrow?


We will help determine how much of a mortgage loan you can afford, and the amount of money you can borrow, by walking you through pre-qualifying. We can achieve this by analyzing your debts and income, your employment and housing circumstances, the available funds for down payment, required reserves, and other considerations. It is a short, thorough process with minimal risks for papercuts.

We'll award you a Pre-Qualification Letter once you qualify, which states that we are confident you can qualify for a certain amount of mortgage dollars.

Buying Power

Armed with your pre-qualification letter, some advantages fall at your feet once you find the house you want to put together an offer on. First, it helps you know the amount that you are able to offer. Being pre-qualified also will make your offer more attractive to the home seller, as if you were bringing them a bag full of cash! They will not have to wonder if that they are wasting their time if you do not be able to qualify for a big enough mortgage loan. The seller of the home won't worry if he can count on you to qualify for your loan.Your qualifying for the necessary loan amount will not be something for them to worry about. You have the ability to back your offer up.
