Prequalification: what you need to know

Prequalification is an important first step in applying for a home loan. It gives you an idea of what you're likely to qualify for. It helps you figure out how much home you can afford and how much you'll be able to borrow.

Here's what you'll need to start the prequalification process:

  1. Current address
  2. Driver's license and Social Security number
  3. Two months of bank statements
  4. Employment history for the past two years
  5. 30 days of pay stubs and the last two years' tax returns
  6. List of current debts

 

Don't take our word for it. Here's what our members say:

"The loan was great. I already sent my friend and her husband in like two days after I signed my loan and... I think they actually signed on it last week!"

-Jennifer D., homeowner

"This is the fourth home that I’ve bought in my life, and this is by far the best experience."

-Patricia J., homeowner

"My closing was done in two and a half weeks! It happened so much sooner than expected. It was exciting."

-Pedro S., homeowner

Common questions about home loans

If you choose a fixed rate mortgage, the rate you lock in during the loan process will be the rate you have for the life of your loan. A 30-year fixed rate mortgage is one of the most common, traditional types of loans, and can be a particularly attractive option when rates are low.

If you choose an adjustable rate mortgage (or “ARM”) your rate will likely vary over the life of the loan. Many ARMs have what is known as an introductory period in which your rate stays the same for a specified amount of time, followed by periodic rate adjustments for the remainder of the loan. In a "5/1 ARM," for instance, your introductory rate will stay the same for the first five years, and your rate may then adjust up or down each year thereafter. The introductory rates on ARMs are often lower than their fixed rate loan equivalents.

Most lenders offer a wide variety of fixed- and adjustable-rate home loan options (Solarity does!). Solarity's expert Home Loan Guides will help walk you through the loan options to help you find the one that’s best for you and your particular situation.

A pre-qualification letter is a document that states the dollar amount a lender is willing to lend toward a home purchase. It is important to have it when you start house hunting because it will show both your real estate agent and the sellers' agent that you’re a serious and qualified buyer.

Solarity has a number of no down payment and low down payment options. For many loans, Private Mortgage Insurance or PMI may be required if you put less than 20% down. Read more about down payment requirements and  saving for a down payment.

Nothing! A pre-qualified letter is free and will provide you with the buying power you need to start your house hunt.

It typically takes about 48 hours to produce a pre-qualification letter.

Definitely not (unless you want to)! You can do the ENTIRE process online, applying for a Solarity home loan from your home computer or mobile device. In addition, you can call our expert Home Loan Guides. If you walk into a branch, we can connect you with our Home Loan Guides that way, too!

We will work around your schedule and will communicate with you in the manner that's most convenient for you. We go to great lengths to make the entire process for you as easy as we can. You can even close the loan from your mobile phone (message and data rates may apply). We can't wait to help you get started!
