Loan prequalification vs. pre-approval
Getting pre-qualified for a loan can help you determine what you can afford. Pre-qualification is a general first step based on preliminary information about your financial status. Pre-approval is obtained when all required documentation is submitted to a loan officer who then, based on credit, debt, income, etc., determines the appropriate loan amount for you--this may include submission to an automated underwriting approval program based on FNMA or FHA guidelines.
