Pre-Approval goes a step further than Pre-Qualifying. Pre-Approval means the lender has contacted the borrower's employer, bank and other places to verify all claims of earnings and assets. In return, the borrower receives a letter stating that he or she has a mortgage approval for a particular amount.
Since you already qualify for financing, pre-approval can speed up and improve your chances of reaching an agreement on the purchase price with the seller. The only cost for pre-approval may be the lenders cost of obtaining your credit report. With a pre-approval, you're going to have more leverage when you make an offer.
You can say, "I've got a loan approved already that's sufficient to purchase this home, investment property or business," and that makes you more attractive to a potential seller.
