A pre-approval letter is a document Simplist provides stating the exact loan amount you're eligible to borrow based on the information you provide in your application. A pre-approval letter is always contingent on the future confirmation of your financial standing, an appraisal, and a title report. Obtaining a pre-approval letter will allow you to determine the price of the house you can afford and help you narrow your search. It can also be used to signal you're a serious buyer to a potential seller or real estate agent.
