What is the difference between being Pre-qualified and Pre-Approved?

Pre-qualification is normally determined by a loan officer. After the loan officer determines that you pre-qualify, he/she then issues a pre-qualification letter. The pre-qualification letter is used when you make an offer on a property. 

Pre-approval is a step above pre-qualification. Pre-approval involves verifying your credit, down payment, employment history, etc. Your loan application is submitted to the underwriter of a lender, and a decision is made regarding your loan application. When your loan is pre-approved, you receive a pre-approval certificate. 

What is the difference between fixed rate and adjustable rate mortgages?

A fixed rate mortgage is a loan where the principal and interest payment never change during the life of the loan. Fixed rate mortgages are beneficial to those who are on a fixed income, (adverse to interest rate change) and those who prefer fixed payment schedules.


Adjustable rate mortgages are advantageous for those who do not plan to stay in their home for a long time, for those borrowers who do not qualify at higher fixed interest rates, and those who can financially handle fluctuating payments.

What are Escrow Accounts?

Escrows are payments made by you to the mortgage company for the purpose of paying your taxes, insurance, and other payments associated with home ownership. The mortgage company is responsible for the timely disbursement of escrow funds to pay your escrow bills as they come due.

What is PMI?

Private Mortgage Insurance and government mortgage insurance protect the lender against default and enable the lender to make a loan, which the lender considers a higher risk.


Lenders often require mortgage insurance for loans when the down payment is less than 20% of the sales price.
