Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What’s the difference between a prequalification and a preapproval?

A preapproval is a thorough look at your finances, including credit history, income, employment, assets and debt, and determines exactly what you can afford. A prequalification is an estimate of how much a borrower could (roughly) qualify for. Don’t be fooled by other lenders who offer to “prequalify” you in minutes without having an underwriter review your information.

What is a preapproval letter?

A preapproval letter is a conditional commitment in writing for an exact loan amount and an interest rate as well. Once you’re preapproved, our team of underwriters will provide you with your preapproval letter to share with your realtor, so they know exactly what you can afford and to any sellers, so they know you’re a serious buyer. Plus, getting preapproved with Nutter doesn’t cost you a dime and we can usually give you an answer within 24 hours.

Does getting preapproved commit me to anything?

No. Getting preapproved does not mean you are obligated to get a mortgage with us or anyone else.

Do preapprovals expire?

Yes. Your preapproval letter will expire after 90 days. However, if you haven’t found your dream home or made an offer within those 90 days, just give us a call 1-800-875-7334 to renew it!
