If you’re in the market to buy a home, you’re probably learning many new vocabulary words. Pre-approved and pre-qualified are some buzz words that you’ll need to know. There’s a big difference in the two and how each can help you in the home buying process, so you’ll want to educate yourself. With the proper preparation and knowledge, the home buying process will be much easier for you.  


Pre-Qualification


This is actually the initial step that you should take in the home buying process. Being pre-qualified allows your lender to get some key information from you. Make no mistake that getting pre-qualified is not the same thing as getting pre-approved.


The qualification process allows you to understand how much house you’ll be able to afford. Your lender will look at your income, assets, and general financial picture. There’s not a whole lot of information that your lender actually needs to get you pre-qualified. Many buyers make the mistake of interchanging the words qualified and approval. They think that once they have been pre-qualified, they have been approved for a certain amount as well. Since the pre-qualification process isn’t as in-depth, you could be “qualified” to buy a home that you actually can’t afford once you dig a bit deeper into your financial situation. 


Being Pre-Approved


Getting pre-approved requires a bit more work on your part. You’ll need to provide your lender with a host of information including income statements, bank account statements, assets, and more. Your lender will take a look at your credit history and credit score. All of these numbers will go into a formula and help your lender determine a safe amount of money that you’ll be able to borrow for a house. Things like your credit score and credit history will have an impact on the type of interest rate that you’ll get for the home. The better your credit score, the better the interest rate will be that you’re offered. Being pre-approved will also be a big help to you when you decide to put an offer in on a home since you’ll be seen as a buyer who is serious and dependable.  


Things To Think About


Although getting pre-qualified is fairly simple, it’s a good step to take to understand your finances and the home buying process. Don’t take the pre-qualification numbers as set in stone, just simply use them as a guide. 


Do some investigating on your own before you reach the pre-approval stage. Look at your income, debts, and expenses. See if there is anything that can be paid down before you take the leap to the next step. Check your credit report and be sure that there aren’t any errors on the report that need to be remedied. Finally, look at your credit score and see if there’s anything that you can do better such as make more consistent on-time payments or pay down debt for a more desirable debt-to-income ratio.

Boosting the value of your home doesn’t have to require huge renovation projects, thousands of dollars, and months of planning. Making small, tactful home improvements can do the trick just as well.

The key to making desirable home improvements is to follow well-established building and design principles. Don’t worry about the latest trends or trying to reinvent the wheel.

In this post, we’ll tell you how to do just that so your home can be market ready in no time. Here are the top ten improvements for your home that cost $100 or less.

1. Add fixtures to the most outdated room of your home

Most people tend to renovate their homes one room at a time. If you have that one room that’s keeping your home in the past, bring it up to speed by replacing the fixtures; whether that’s a new faucet, doorknobs, or other hardware.

2. Shine the light on your hard work

A dark room feels smaller, older, and less put together. Abundant lighting is an excellent way to make your home feel larger and more welcoming.

3. Paint the front door and mailbox

It’s all about curb appeal. Refresh the outside of your home by putting a fresh coat of paint on your front door and mailbox. Bright, bold colors are sure to help your home stand apart from the neighbors while still fitting in.

4. Powerwash exterior surfaces

For $50 you can rent a pressure washer and clean up your vinyl siding, decks, walkways, and driveways. That’s a lot of value and square footage for a small investment.

5. Buy a “luxury shower head”

You can find spa-style shower heads on Amazon for less than $40 that look great and will make your home feel a bit more luxurious.

6. Stage to sell

Buy some modern wall art and large plants and ditch the family heirlooms for when it comes time to sell. These additions will make it easier for prospective buyers to picture themselves living in your home.

7. Mirrors are magic

Mirrors can be used in a number of places around the home to create the illusion of spaciousness in rooms that are otherwise lacking. There are plenty of creative uses for mirrors for each room of the home.

8. Ditch the linoleum

Underneath those linoleum floors lies wood that might be able to be refurbished. Don’t worry about small dings; they add character.

9. Get ready for the welcome party

Buy a fresh doormat and replace an old doorbell to make visitors feel like they’re entering a brand new home.

10. Cable management is king

Hide those cables in the office and living room by tying them behind displays or running wires underneath carpets or behind the drywall. This can instantly make your home feel more clean and put-together.
