Frequently Asked Questions

  • Am I eligible?

    The Power Buyer loan option is available to all borrowers using a qualifying mortgage program. Your mortgage adviser will help determine if becoming a Power Buyer is right for you.

  • How does it work?

    Normally, buyers find their home, submit an offer with their fingers crossed, and work frantically after it's accepted to secure final mortgage approval. But because we know how competitive the homebuying market is, we take care of the later-stage paperwork before you start shopping for your home. As a Power Buyer, you'll receive a stamp of approval before you shop.* That means you can make an offer that truly stands out.

  • When can I close?

    Power Buyers close more quickly than traditional borrowers. In fact, we guarantee our work with a lightning-fast closing timeline of as little as 15 days. In the unlikely event that we miss the date, we’ll pay up to $1,000 to the seller.** That’s another reason it pays to be a Power Buyer!

  • Does it cost extra?

    Nope. The Power Buyer loan program is available at no extra cost to you.

* Power Buyer pre-approval is based on a full underwriter review of the borrower’s creditworthiness and is contingent upon there being no material changes in the borrower’s financial condition or creditworthiness at the time of final loan approval.
