Lainie Chambers, Mortgage Loan Officer with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, Interviewed on Colorado Real Estate Leaders Podcast

Lainie Chambers discusses the difference between being pre-approved and pre-qualified for a mortgage loan. If people are thinking about buying a home in Colorado, they’ll likely need to get a mortgage. But before they start the process, it’s important to understand the difference between being pre-approved and pre-qualified for a loan.

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:

Chambers explained that: “Pre-approval means that a lender has reviewed people’s financial information and is willing to provide them with a loan up to a certain amount. This gives them a clear idea of how much money they can borrow and can make the home-buying process easier and more streamlined. Pre-qualification, on the other hand, simply means that people have provided some basic information to a lender who then gives them an estimate of how much money they could potentially borrow. This is not as formal as pre-approval and doesn’t guarantee that they’ll actually get the loan.”

So, if someone is serious about buying a home in Colorado, it’s best to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan. This will give buyers the peace of mind of knowing how much money they have to work with and will make the home-buying process go more smoothly.

At Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, they understand the importance of being the most favorable deal on the table. The winning combination of a Fairway Cash Guarantee and Fairway Advantage Pre-Approval* will give you the buying power you need to COMPETE WITH CASH! In fact, Fairway is so confident that they will buy the seller’s home if they cannot close for a financing reason by the contracted date.

If the guarantee is triggered, the seller may opt for Fairway to NOT buy their home, and instead walk away from the deal with $10,000 paid by Fairway, and the contract terminated.

 Vickie F. says: “Fairway surprised me with their business integrity. They communicated well among themselves to work out my financing in the way I had imagined my dollars to stretch. Everything here is transparent and there were no hidden items to deal with. Integrity is more than just a word the company uses. It also describes their people.”
