Every conventional mortgage that includes a minimum 20% down payment requires an appraisal because the mortgage is uninsured. The lender wants to see that your purchase price is in line with the property’s fair market value. Lenders want to see that you are purchasing a quality property and that they will be able to recuperate the full amount if you default on the loan.

Why should I get a pre-approved mortgage?
There are several benefits to getting a Pre-Approval before you start searching for your next home.
- Your mortgage rate will be secured for 120 days. Even if rates go up, yours won’t.
- You’ll know what you can afford, helping to narrow down the search process.
- Pre-approval will make you look like a more serious buyer, helping you find a good realtor and can give you negotiating power with the home seller.
- A mortgage pre-approval will make the final closing faster since you already have most of the work completed.
