Helpful tips from Morty.

"On our platform, we do require a hard credit pull in order to complete the pre-approval letter. If you are not ready to pull your credit, you can still see an estimate of your buying power with current rates after entering details about yourself. Typically when shopping around for a new mortgage, it’s common to have your credit pulled with a few different lenders. It shouldn’t impact your score if it’s within a 30 to 45 day window. Credit reports are good for up to 120 days."
