Many homebuyers have asked, "What the heck is the difference?" Let's quickly break it down.
Getting prequalified for a mortgage loan is a rough estimate of how much you can afford in terms of a loan. It's quick and it gives you a ballpark idea of a price range, but it does not guarantee you a loan or specific loan amount.
On the other hand, getting pre-approved takes your credit, employment, and other important information into account. A preapproval from a mortgage lender is an actual written commitment that says they will finance your loan up to a certain amount.
I've always thought the terms were a little confusing, considering how similar they are. No matter what, if you're looking for a new home, getting prequalified and preapproved is an excellent first step when it comes to looking at properties.
