If you are in the process of purchasing a home, your first step is to inquire about your mortgage financing options. As you’re doing this, it is very important to be able to distinguish the difference between a Pre-Qualification and a Pre-Approval. Based on your current financial situation such as income, savings, credit, etc, the bank will be able to inform you how much of a house you can afford.
