Not Getting Pre-approved for a Mortgage

One common mistake is not getting pre-approved for a mortgage before you begin house hunting. Even better than verbal pre-approval, you can get a written pre-approval from the bank that includes your credit application and a certificate that guarantees the amount you are qualified for. 

When multiple homebuyers submit an offer on the same home, all other things being equal, the homebuyer with pre-approval will be chosen. A written preapproval is like money in the bank while an offer conditional on financing is a gamble. 

Having a mortgage pre approval gives you peace of mind when shopping for a home. Plus, the pre-approval process is fast, easy and free.

Not Setting a Workable Budget

Another common mistake is not knowing what dollar amount you are comfortable with paying. Instead of setting your budget by what you qualify for, assess your finances to set a budget you are comfortable with. That number may be higher or lower than what you are qualified for. 

Not only will this save you headaches down the road, but it will also save you time by not viewing properties outside of your price range.
