As a prospective buyer, having a mortgage AIP can give you a better advantage in the home buying process.
Sharpen your property search
It can be rather pointless looking at properties and browsing through reams of marketing material if you don't know what your money can buy. With a mortgage AIP, you are better informed about what properties fit within your budget and thus you may focus your energies in exploring more property options that are within your range.
Get access to the best deals
There are always people who need to sell their property immediately. Most often, these are the best deals you can get. With a mortgage AIP, the chances your property agent informing you of a great deal may be higher. It may also provide you with an upper hand during the final negotiations.
Enjoy 'serious buyer' status
Developers and property agents get many calls every day. To establish whether you are a serious buyer, they may sometimes like to know if you already have a mortage AIP. If you do, you may be considered a serious buyer and may get the right attention from the property agents.
