My lender works with buyers with fico scores 580 and up and usually can get the loan closed and funded within 21 days. After Oct. 3rd when the new CFPB laws take effect, closings will be an average of 45 days so now is definitely the time to act. Feel free to call or email for further details.

Another option is to go with private mortgage insurance which would automatically drop of when your home reaches 78%LTV based on the amortization schedule. Or just go with lender paid mortgage insurance which will slightly raise the rate you qualify for. Move before rates rise! ... more

FNMA will normally allow you to do a Conventional loan with 20% down after 2 years. My advice is that you make application and get pre-approved prior to looking for a house.
If your husband was not on the previous loan and can qualify for the purchase just using his income, that might be another option for you. ... more

You can get approved with under a 600 credit score for home loan, I am not sure about a 550. I have had clients with a 580 credit score get approved for an FHA loan just 3.5% down, The Lenders Network is the place to start for any questions loan related. If you need help to get your scores up they can help with that too.

Good Luck!

Gregorio Denny answered:
"It does not matter what year because that is not a factor at all... "

It's statements like that that are frustrating. The year DOES matter because of the way mortgages are amortized. If you only have 10 years left on a 30 year note, you are paying mostly principal at this point. If you refinanced to a new 30 year at this point, even with a lower interest rate, you most likely would save nothing in interest over the remaining life. Even refinancing to a new 10 year at a lower rate may or may not yield a benefit, it would depend on the initial rate and new rate. Only a detailed analysis of your current mortgage and future goals can determine when is the best time to refinance; but for someone to say the year does not matter, is absolutely untrue. ... more

You will probably get a better rate if you go through a mortgage broker who does loans with Citi, rather than a Citi branch or loan officer. Mortgage brokers get significantly better rates from the banks than the banks itself offer in their retail branches.

I've been in real estate for 18 years and I can only say that having a ' real ' person to hold accountable is worth the tiny percentage you MIGHT save using an online loan company.

In the home buying process- often we find that evenings and weekends are when we need to be able to reach your lender. While some companies might be 'reachable' the confidence that a local lender inspires is immeasurable when submitting an offer.

So- to summarize.. use someone who can really provide the answers, service and accountability that being local provides.
Saving some small amount of money over 30 years will never pay for the hassle or stress that can come with using an out of town bank.

Clearly there are exceptions and I am sure Quicken has provided many good loans. ..but nothing can substitute for face to face relationships when making big life decisions.

William Polack answered:
send a letter to the lender giving permission for your wife to access the account. If you want to get credit for the loan, add her to the checking account where the mortgage payment is being made and she can show proof of making the payments on time. it doesn't necessarily have to be on the credit report, afterall there are mortgage companies who don't report to the credit bureaus. ... more

About 90% of mortgages are owned by either Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae. You can go on those websites and with proper identification should be able to find the answer to your question of "who actually owns the note". I hope that was helpful and I wish you the very best in reaching your real estate goals. ... more

Jackie Pulcano answered:
Be prepared to explain these in detail, should the lender see the overdrafts on your bank statement. Although they will not have an impact on your credit score, it becomes a concern to a lender as to whether or not you can successfully manage your cash flow. Explain the isolated large expenses and prepare a detailed budget (just in case) to show the lender that you can handle all of your financial obligations. This is especially important if you are a first time homebuyer, who is not familiar with all of the expensed involved in homeownership.

I wish you the best of luck. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.
