In the olden days REALTORS actually knew how to talk to a buyer and ask enough questions to qualify them enough to determine whether they were credit worthy. Since the days of "breath and sign" loans are now gone, the foreclosure banks actually started the habit of forcing the buyers to get pre-qualified with their instituation in order to even look at an offer from a buyer. This then rolled over into the regular resale market. A pre-qualifed buyer has always been given priorty when their offer is presented to the seller over a buyer who is not prepared with a pre-approval. There is a difference between a pre-qualificaiton and a pre-approval.
