Lenders expect that a pre-qualification letter will be sent with each offer that is presented. Without this letter, your offer will not be accepted, and you could miss out on getting the property you wanted to purchase.
Be sure your lender knows the condition of the property to determine the type of financing to use. You must also be sure that the condition of the property matches the type of financing you want. If a home has leaking pipes or peeling paint, you will not be able to use some types of home purchase financing.
