Why Prequalification is so important in today’s real estate market.

In the current real estate market, inventory is low, demand is high and some properties have multiple buyers and offers being presented. You want YOUR offer to stand out and be the “most viable” when presented against other offers. Most sellers these days require “prequalification” letters to accompany any contracts to ensure that the potential buyer is viable, qualified and able to move to closing without issue. With shorter option periods, it’s important that buyers have all their loan qualifications determined prior to contract to ensure a smooth transaction and closing. The Seller wants to choose the best candidate for closing at time of contract signing.
