Get Pre-Qualified: a great aid in negotiating a better price.
We offer Pre-Qualifications and Pre-Approval services to let you know before you start shopping how much you can afford; saving you time, hassle and maybe even money later on. Plus, when sellers, builders or realtors know you’re pre-approved for a mortgage subject to a property, they will treat you as a preferred buyer.
For the customer who is not ready to submit a formal loan application, Astoria Bank offers a free no obligation Pre-Qualification Certificate. You simply give us your income, assets and liabilities, and we'll provide a no-obligation Pre-Qualification Certificate to help you estimate how much you may be able to borrow.
Pre-Qualification may even enable you to negotiate a more favorable sales price—it’s one of the reasons we created this free service.
Astoria Bank offers a free loan Pre-Approval Program which allows the borrower to start the formal loan application program prior to selecting a property for purchase. The standard loan application must be completed by the borrower along with verified income, assets, debts, and liabilities.
If your loan is approved, approval will be made subject to the receipt of a fully executed contract of sale and an appraisal. Astoria Bank charges a nominal fee for this service which may be applied to the fees charged in connection with your loan.
