Unless you are buying a house in cash, you pretty much have to have a mortgage pre-approval letter from your bank before you even start house hunting. That’s typically something you would go to the bank for, but a number of mortgage services now also allow you to go through this process online. Online real estate site Zillow has long offered mortgage comparison services and a web-based pre-approval process, but today it is taking this one step further by adding pre-approval to its mobile apps, too. So now, when you spontaneously decide that it’s time to buy your dream home, you can get pre-approved right on the doorstep as you walk into the Saturday open house while the smell of fresh-baked cookies from the seller’s agent wafts into your face. Pre-approval is available through Zillow’s Mortgages app and its real estate search app on iOS.
