Ask An Expert

Why aren’t all buyers able to buy?

In markets with less than six months of inventory, competition between buyers can be intense. To elevate their standing with a seller, buyers will often provide a prequalification letter. In a prequalification, lenders don't verify the information provided by a buyer. A preapproval, on the other hand, involves third-party verification. After an offer, I verify that a prospective buyer is preapproved for the contract amount and that closing in the expected time period—usually 30 to 45 days—won’t be an issue. Learn more about preapproval from Beverly-Hanks Mortgage Services.
