You might have an idea of the payment and mortgage you can afford. But will the bank feel likewise? It’s always best to pre-qualify for a mortgage so you know exactly how much a financial institution is willing to lend you.
In many respects we very often find that financial Institutions will lend you far more than you want to borrow. What you can borrow and what you can afford are often two very different things. We’re here to help you figure that out.
In the prequalification process, you will find out:
- Exactly how much home you can afford.
- How much cash you will need for the down payment.
- The minimum down payment, and advantages of higher down payments.
- What the bank feels you can afford for a monthly payment.
The 519 Real Estate Team helps buyers pre-qualify for mortgages every day. Simply fill out the form below to tell us what type of home you’re looking for and we’ll get you information on a qualified mortgage specialist that will be able to assist you in understanding the ins and outs of mortgages.
Remember: we will respect your privacy! We know this is your personal information, and we will not distribute it to anyone, other than a qualified mortgage broker. This service is also provided free of charge, and without any obligation on your part. It is part of our job as realtors.

It’s important to understand your new home
If you are purchasing a resale property, we highly recommend that you have a professional home inspector conduct a thorough inspection. The inspection will include the following:
- Air conditioning and heating
- Roof and Attic
- General Structure
The inspection is not designed to criticize every minor problem or defect in the home. It is intended to report on major damage or serious problems that require repair. Should serious problems be indicated, the inspector will recommend that a structural engineer or some other professional inspect it as well.
Your home cannot “pass or fail” an inspection, and your inspector will not tell you whether he/she thinks the home is worth the money you are offering. The inspector’s job is to make you aware of repairs that are recommended or necessary. It’s like a “to-do” list!
The seller may be willing to negotiate completion of repairs or a credit for completion of repairs, or you may decide that the home will take too much work and money. A professional inspection will help you make a clear-headed decision.
In choosing a home inspector, consider one that has been certified as a qualified and experienced member by a trade association.
We recommend being present at the inspection. This is to your advantage. You will be able to clearly understand the inspection report, and know exactly which areas need attention. Plus, you can get answers to many questions, tips for maintenance, and a lot of general information that will help you once you move into your new home. Most importantly, you will see the home through the eyes of an objective third party.
