Mortgage Approval FAQs
How do I get a mortgage approval?
Getting a mortgage approval is easy. Start by contacting your local mortgage broker and provide the information required. They will get you approved at a variety of different lenders that you can choose from.
Do I need an offer on a house for a pre-approval?
No, you do not need to have a purchase agreement or offer placed on a house in order to get a pre-approval. Getting a mortgage pre-approval only requires information about your financial situation.
How long do pre-approvals last?
The best time to get pre-approved is before you start shopping for homes. Our pre-approvals lock in your rate for 120 days. Therefore this allows you to spend months looking and know exactly how much you’re qualified to borrow.
We have mortgage pre-approval options for a variety of situations.
