Competition is hot in many housing markets across the country, and buyers are pulling out all of the stops in an attempt to woo sellers into selecting their purchase offers. Now buyers have one more trick up their sleeve — instant home loan pre-approval by a participating lender on the Zillow mortgage and real estate apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

No matter where they are, buyers can get a pre-approval letter sent straight to their smartphone and can then save, print, email or share the letter with their agent and home sellers.

Buyers start by filling out a simple questionnaire. Once buyers begin the pre-approval process, they can elect to have the lender pull their credit report information. If a buyer meets guidelines, a mortgage pre-approval letter will be sent directly to the mobile device. It is as simple as that.
