The two terms are often confused because they are so similar. But in reality, they are very different.

- Getting prequalified for a mortgage doesn’t entail a credit check or official documentation. This process simply estimates how much you could qualify to borrow.

- Getting preapproved, on the other hand, requires official documentation; verification of your income, assets, and debts; and a credit check. A preapproval concretely specifies how much you have been approved to borrow.

Getting preapproved gives you clarity on how much you can afford, which makes it important to do before you start your home search.
Once you find a home, it also assures the seller that you’re serious and financially able to buy their home.

Conventional wisdom often suggests that when your counters start to stand out because of their stains or damage then it’s likely time to start thinking about new countertops. That can be a really big expense, though… which is why you might be better off considering resurfacing your countertops first.
