What Goes Into the Mortgage Pre-Approval Process?

The pre-approval process is a key step in obtaining a home loan, and a lot goes into it. Today, I've enlisted the help of my preferred lender Eric to help me explain this process. It all starts with a phone call, where a lender gets the initial information to start to give you an idea of what you can qualify for. After just a 10-minute phone call, you'll have a much better idea. Then, you can start diving into the specifics. For more information on this process, watch my latest video. http://athomewithtrudy.com/what-goes-into-the-mortgage-pre-approval-process.html
