By getting preapproved, your offer on a home may be more appealing when compared to other buyers who haven't been preapproved. When purchasing an already-existing property, sellers may consider an offer more serious if the buyer is already approved. This also generally makes for a quicker purchase process.

Additionally, when gathering documents together to bring to lenders or home financers, be sure to grab a copy of your bank statements, your most recent tax return and W-2, proof of other investments and a photo ID. Lenders will also be checking your credit report and score to determine what rate will be offered. Because of this, you should be sure to stay on top of your finances to avoid getting denied or receiving a higher rate for negative report and low scores.

Since this process uses so many specific details of your finances, you may need to be patient. It's generally a wise decision to get preapproved before you begin your home search, but be aware that many lenders provide a deadline to close. Be sure to give yourself enough time to compare offers from multiple lenders, while understanding that most home developers work with a single financing service.
