Sellers expect you to be a qualified buyer by supplying them with a pre-approval letter when looking at their home and making an offer.  A Pre-approval letter where a lending company has ran a credit check to confirm your eligibility to borrow and then calculated the allowable loan maximum limits based on your income vs. expenses.  Some buyers just assume they can skip this step because they believe everything is good.  In reality is not uncommon for issues to show up on your credit report that you either did not know existed or they are reporting errors including identity thief.  When buying a home in Seminole and making offers without pre-approval papers you will never get the seller to agree to take it off the market for you and loose opportunities with buyers who can make them comfortable that they can get the loan.   In addition when preparing a pre-approval letter the lender can tell you whether you qualify for any other special programs that will enable you to afford a better home.  You can find an approved lender by visiting our directory section of this website.
