Pre-Approval vs Pre-Qualifying For a Mortgage

Pre-qualification and pre-approval are two different steps in the mortgage application process.

Pre-qualification is the initial step in the process, in which a lender will ask you for basic information about your income, debt, and assets. Based on this information, the lender will give you an estimate of how much you might be able to borrow. Pre-qualification is typically done online or over the phone and is a relatively quick process.

Pre-approval, on the other hand, is a more detailed process that involves submitting documentation to the lender to verify your income, assets, and creditworthiness. This typically involves filling out an application and providing documentation such as T-4's, tax returns, bank statements, and pay stubs. The lender will then review your application and credit history to determine how much they are willing to lend you and at what interest rate.

Pre-approval is more thorough than pre-qualification and provides a more accurate estimate of how much you can borrow. It also gives you a better idea of what your interest rate and monthly mortgage payment might be. Because pre-approval requires more documentation and a more detailed review by the lender, it typically takes longer than pre-qualification.

In summary, pre-qualification is a quick estimate of how much you might be able to borrow, while pre-approval is a more thorough process that provides a more accurate estimate of how much you can borrow and at what interest rate.

February 2023 - Calgary Real Estate Housing Market Update
New listings and inventory levels all trended up compared to last month, however, with 1,740 sales and 2,389 new listings, inventory levels improved only slightly over the last month and remained amongst the lowest February levels seen since 2006.

Both sales and new listings declined over last year’s record high for the month. While sales activity remained stronger than long-term trends and levels reported throughout the 2015 to 2020 period, new listings fell below long-term trends.

With a sales-to-new-listings ratio of 73% and a months of supply of under 2 months, the market has struggled to move into balanced territory causing further upward pressure on home prices. The unadjusted benchmark price increased by nearly 2% over January levels and last year’s prices.

If you or someone you know have questions about how this may impact your home selling or buying decision, send me a message!⁠ ⁠

March 2023 | Bank of Canada Rate Announcement

The Bank of Canada has decided to maintain the overnight rate target at 4.5%, the Bank Rate at 4.75%, and the deposit rate at 4.5%. The Bank is also continuing its policy of quantitative tightening. The global economic environment is consistent with the Bank's January Monetary Policy Report, with inflation decreasing due to lower energy prices and global growth continuing to slow.

In Canada, economic growth was flat in the fourth quarter of 2022, and there was a significant slowdown in inventory investment. Consumption, government spending, and net exports all increased, but household spending was impacted by restrictive monetary policy, and business investment weakened.

The labour market remains tight, with employment growth strong, but productivity has declined. Inflation decreased to 5.9% in January due to lower energy prices, but price increases for food and shelter remain high.

The Bank expects CPI inflation to come down to around 3% in the middle of this year. The Bank will continue to monitor economic developments and the impact of past interest rate increases, and is prepared to raise the policy rate further if necessary to restore inflation to the 2% target. The Bank is committed to achieving price stability for Canadians.

Reach out with your questions about how this impacts your home buying or selling decision. And if you need a mortgage broker, I can connect to you a like-minded individual.
