Beware of people who make promises before they know who you are. For best results, talk with a local lender and or a local realtor. To find someone reputable, you can seek out a local agent through Trulia, or you can ask the people you work with or where you bank. Your score is low, and if someone does finance you, you may be required to pay a hirer interest rate. Just keep working to improve your score and you will get where you need to be. Best of luck to you!
Getting Pre-Qualified prior to beginning the home search is critical. To do this, you would need to submit a Pre-Qualification request along with your financial documentation. The following documentation will be needed:
â€¢ Two most recent years of Wâ€™2â€™s/income 1099â€™s
â€¢ Two most recent years of Federal Income Tax returns
â€¢ Two most recent pay stubs
â€¢ Two most recent months of bank statements (all pages)
A loan officer who does not ask for and properly reviews all of the above documentation along with your credit report is doing no service to you and may not be very experienced. Experienced loan officers know that many issues come to light only once the actual documentation has been reviewed.
A Pre-Qualification is valid for 90-120 days from the date that the credit report has been pulled. At the time of closing, most documents (i.e. credit report, income/asset documentation, appraisal, etc.). Should anything be older than 90-120 days old, an update will be required. For credit, this is simply the loan officer obtaining a new credit report.
As one of the largest direct lenders in the country, Prospect Mortgage offers one of the largest selections of loan programs available. In addition to the standard conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, and Jumbo, we also offer a wide range on Renovation loan programs. Our Renovation programs include FHA 203(k) (Streamline & Consultant), HomePath Renovation, and HomeStyle Renovation. In addition, we also have an FHA 580-639 FICO program for borrower with previous credit issues.
It MAY be possible. There is absolutely no way for anyone to tell you an accurate yes or no until a complete Pre-Qualifcation request has been reviewed. For an FHA mortgage, most lenders have required a 640+ credit score since 2008/2009.
Prospect Mortgage is one of the few direct lenders to offer an FHA 580-639 FICO loan program. Credit profile is a major factor in a mortgage approval. Generally, there should be no late payments, new collections accounts/charge-offs/liens/judgments in the last 12 months. It is required that all open collection accounts must be paid in full if their cumulative balances exceed $1,000.
The 3.5% minimum down payment can be from the borrowers own funds or it can be gifted from a family member. Two months of reserves for the PITI (Principal + Interest + Taxes + Insurance) payment + HOA Dues will be required. This must be from the borrowerâ€™s own funds and not a gift. FHA loans will allow a seller contribution toward closing costs/pre-paids of up to 6% of the sales price.
You will typically also need a verified 12 month on time housing history. This will need to be verified by either 12 months of cancelled check or by a Verification of Rent from your management company.
Once you are ready to purchase, working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your options.
