Buying a home can be a daunting experience for a first time home buyer. Some of the questions and concerns that come to mind are:
- I don’t know where to start!!!
Before you can even think about mortgage loans, it’s a good idea to know what’s on your credit report. You can get access to your credit reports from several websites including: creditkarma.com (only 2 of 3 credit reports are available here), creditchecktotal.com, and myiqreport.com to name a few.
- But I have low credit scores. Can you help me?
Absolutely yes. A lot of our clients have low credit scores when they start our home buyer assistance program. Our overall goal is to provide a great mix of credit disputing and credit boosting methods that improves your credit scores. Beware of credit repair companies or the sole credit repairer that claim that they can help you. Typically these companies only dispute, but rarely use credit boosting methods that get you credit ready for loan approvals. We have years of experience in finance and helping people get approved for personal loans and business loans.
- Can I really get a home loan with bad credit?
Yes, you can buy a home with bad credit. There exist bad credit mortgage lenders that offer what we like to call a bad credit mortgage loans or FHA loans, that allows people with bad credit to buy a home. The credit requirement is only 580, which is actually considered a poor credit score by the three major credit bureaus.
- I can’t even qualify for a credit card, how can I get approved for a home?
We’ve seen this scenario many times. Normally, there could be an item or items on your credit report that needs to be disputed and removed from your credit report. This is our specialty. Through our home buyer assistance program, we can not only get you approved for a home loan, but we can also help by improving your credit scores to get you approved for credit loans as well.
- I don’t have much money. Can you still help me?
Fortunately, there are several mortgage programs available that don’t require a lot of money in your savings account. There are also programs for firsttime buyers that are ‘low down payment’ friendly.
- How fast can you get me ready to buy a home?
Our home buyer assistance program is a 6 month program. However, we’ve helped a few clients get approved in as little as 3 months.
- What is the minimum credit score required to get a mortgage approved?
Of course, there are credit requirements The typical minimum FICO score required to get a mortgage approved is 580+ for FHA loans, 620+ for VA loans (some lenders require 580), and 640+ for a USDA loan.
- How much money do I need?
There are several home mortgage loan programs and loan options, and the program you’re approved for determines how much is required for a down payment. It was standard years ago to put 20% down. Today, 3% – 5% are more common down payments, with some programs available that require as little as $0 down. Here are a few typical down payments by program: USDA Mortgages – as little as $0 down in less industrialized areas; Conventional Mortgages – as little as 3% down; FHA Mortgages – as little as 3.5% down.
- How much are closing costs?
There are many instances where motivated sellers cover closing costs for home buyers, so the buyer pays $0 in closing costs. However, typical closing costs on average can be about 2.5% of the purchase price.
- What are typical mortgage rates and how much will my monthly mortgage payments be?
We will consider fixed rate loans (however, keep in mind that there are also loans with adjustable rates). Let’s assume the current mortgage rate is 3.5% on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage of $200,000. Your monthly payment in this scenario would be $898.09. Loan rates constantly change and you can use google to figure out todays mortgage rate. You can also use google to test different scenarios using a mortgage calculator. One other thing to consider is the cost of home insurance. This amount can vary depending on the cost of your home, the location of your home, and coverage limits. You will need to consult an insurance company to determine approximate cost of home insurance.
Whatever questions or concerns that you have, you have to start somewhere. That starts with a conversation. We have heard all of these questions and many more. The good news is, we have helped people buy homes who have started with these same questions and concerns.
The thing that we tell people, is that it’s much easier to qualify for a home loan than you think. Believe it or not, it’s much easier to qualify ‘credit-wise’ for a home loan than it is to walk into a new car dealership and purchase a new car.
