As Freddie Mac puts it:

“The pre-approval letter from your lender tells you the maximum amount you are qualified to borrow. Getting a pre-approval letter is not a loan guarantee, it simply states how much your lender is willing to lend you. . . .”

While determining how much you can afford at the start of your search is critical, another important purpose for a pre-approval letter is that it helps to seal the deal.
