Spring is just around the corner which traditionally means the property market will start to warm up. If you are considering making that next property purchase, it is recommended to get a home loan pre-approval first. It not only saves you time on your property search but also protects you from overspending at an auction.
How long does pre-approval take?
Turn-around times for pre-approvals vary for each lender from the time of application submission. Verify with your broker the expected timeframe for your preferred lender. Providing us with the correct documentation up-front will help achieve a speedy turnaround.
