Banks and even some bond originators can provide a preapproval or prequalification certificate confirming that the buyer qualifies for certain bond amount.

The pre-approval is based on a preliminary credit screening based on the information provided by the buyer, which will be verified when a formal application is made. This gives a buyer more leverage when negotiating with a seller.
