Pre-approved mortgage

It's always a great idea to get pre-approved for a mortgage. It tells you exactly how much you can spend, shows that you're a serious buyer and simplifies matters with your real estate broker or seller.

Limited-time offer: Lock in your mortgage rate until June 30, 2021.

Why get pre-approved?

A mortgage pre-approval paves your way to homeownership because it:

  • certifies your buying capacity
  • tells you how much you can spend, based on your borrowing capacity and down payment
  • can protect you from interest rate hikes if your rate is guaranteed
  • simplifies communication with the real estate broker or seller
