Given the current state of the pandemic, it’s not surprising that many sellers are concerned about the number of would-be buyers touring their home. To help limit this, many are now requiring pre-approval letters prior to taking the tour in an effort to cut down on casual visitors.

Other homeowners are requiring pre-qualification letters, which are considerably easier to get.

Fair housing experts point out that if realtors are requiring pre-approval letters to tour a home, they must ask all buyers to submit proof or risk raising fair housing issues.
