PreQualification ·



Pre-qualification is the first step in determining your ability to commit to a mortgage loan. Begin here by entering your information below:


  1. Purchase Price: Value of home to buy.
  2. Down Payment: Amount given to bank upon getting loan.
  3. Term: Amount of time to payoff the loan.
  4. Interest Rate: Current market pricing, varies day to day. (Approx 4% currently. You’ll want to check your credit, as this affects the Interest Rates available to you).
  5. Property Tax: Amount charged by local area in taxes per year.
  6. PMI: Mortgage insurance. Standard rate is filled in.
  7. Property Insurance: Amount for yearly insurance on home.

WITHOUT these figures, you’ll get a VERY POOR indication of your rates, which will NOT payoff. If you’re expecting to get a loan through PennFirst Mortgages, please use THIS calculator with the proper information as best as you can.

Prequalification gives you an estimate of how much you may be able to borrow. Preapproval, on the other hand, indicates that you have been approved for a set loan amount prior to property selection.
