Mortgages are for buyers, why do I need to know about it, if I’m selling?
There are 2 things a seller needs to pay attention to:
Buyer Pre-Qualification or Pre-Approval
I often come across a lot of renters who do not have an idea of what it takes to buy a home. The variety and number of documents alone can be intimidating, but being a homeowner can be one of the most financially rewarding experiences in one’s life. However, that’s assuming that the buyer gets the right house, done in the right way.
Of course, there are other non-financial benefits too: fenced backyard for the dog, school for the kids, no neighbors above or below you, customizing your kitchen, and in some cases, having an attached garage. (This knowledge gives the seller a leg up in negotiations.)

The home loan process might feel overwhelming and difficult to understand, but it is important for the home buyer to be as prepared as possible when they are ready to buy their first home. Both buyers and sellers find terms like “Pre-qualification” and “pre-approval” used interchangeably, it’s no wonder they find themselves wondering how to proceed.
If you are a home seller it will be important for you and your real estate agent to discuss the difference between these two letters and why it’s important. In this hot sellers market here in Spokane you will most likely be receiving several offers on your home. You will want to make sure you are choosing one where the buyer is PRE-APPROVED.
The difference between the two are explained below:
