How do I get pre-approval letters for loans?

7 Replies

Call a lender local or national doesn't matter. they have to run your credit, go over your income and assets to make sure it all falls within loan and lender guidelines. if you do, they will issue you a pre-approval letter for the price you are looking for.

Thank you for your cooperation

I wouldn't over think it. All a POF letter is a piece of paper from joe blow.

@Juan Rubio whomever is lending the money will write up a letter for you. The letters are non-binding, so it doesn't guarantee they will even write the loan. That means the letter should be pretty easy to get. 

You may wonder why people even require pre-approval letters if they are not a guarantee? It is basically a low level vetting process to make sure you have talked to a lender.
