Did you know that we offer Free Pre-approvals without a property address?
Getting pre-approved for home financing provides you with several major advantages, especially in competitive markets. With MortgageUSA, you can obtain a fast, accurate & free pre-approval, even with a TBD "To Be Determined" property address. A win-win situation for everyone.
Here are the different ways a TBD pre-approval can help you:
In a competitive market with multiple offers, sellers often choose the pre-approved buyer even if their offer is slightly lower than other potential buyers without a pre-approval.
If a seller wants to close a sale quickly, a pre-approval provides real peace of mind. This is because all the work on the loan, including a full credit underwrite, has already been performed.
If you have unconfirmed credit and/or employment history, a free pre-approval can help you find out which type of loan you may qualify.
Offering you TBD pre-approvals is another way you are able to be ready when you find the right home. To learn more, contact us.

What is the down payment on a conventional loan?
