Mortgage Pre-Approval Letters

A mortgage pre-approval letter is not a guarantee your loan application will be approved, but pre-approval at least shows the seller you mean business and are likely to secure the financing needed to seal the deal. Furthermore, some sellers require a pre-qualification or pre-approval letter before they will consider or accept your offer.

Depending on the mortgage lender you work with and whether you qualify, you could get a pre-approval in as little as one business day, but it usually takes a few days or even a week to receive – and, if you have to undergo an income audit or other verifications, it can take longer than that.
Mortgage pre-approval letters can last anywhere from 30-90 days, so it’s important to check with your lender prior to submitting any offers to make sure your letter is valid. The letter expires so lenders know exactly where your finances stand prior to buying a home.
