Whether you are looking for a condo in Milwaukee or a summer home on Lake Geneva, having a pre-approval from a lender will be extremely beneficial.

When you approach a lender to be pre-approved you will need to provide them with certain documents. You will need to supply them with your tax returns, bank statements, W2s and pay stubs.
