What kind of rate can we expect for a primary residence loan?

Asked by Georgia home buyer, Woodstock, GA Fri Jul 27, 2012

Hi- It's been exactly 2 years since my wife and I discharged a chapter 7 due to wife's work accident- she is on Social Security disability and LTD. We are soon to receive a 85K WC future medical settlement for her injury.
If we purchase a home for 250K with 50K down, can we get a loan? Both our credit scores with Transunion are around 700. Household income is 106K and debt is aprox 10%

Very sorry to hear of your wife's accident. Many variable go into determining rate you should anticipate. Call me if you need a referral to a lender or mortgage broker.

My understanding is that you can definitely buy again after 2 years of being discharged, but I am not a lender. A lender would be able to provide you with more information about the time lines and rates. Feel free to contact me directly if you would like me to refer you to a lender.

If everything is as you say, you should have very little to no problem in getting a good loan.

2 years from discharge of Chap 7 is the litmus test for accessing the mortgage market...along with surviving FICO scores. Sounds as if you're in pretty good shape since your filing and you should (based on your scenario) be able to obtain a mortgage with us. Obviously, there are more details to consider before unconditional approval but you can expect (based on today's market and is subject to future change) expect 3.375% rate for your purchase money mortgage.

Call me any day 8a-8p to discuss how we can help you get where you want to go...and when.

Over 40 years of personal industry experience at your service....

There should be no reason why you wouldn't qualify with those credit scores. And as long as it's been two years since the bankruptcy and you've re-established your credit, your mortgage rate with our bank would be around 3.25 to 3.375% on a 30 Year Fixed Loan. We have many loan options available and I would love to help you. Access my web site or call me at the cell phone number below, anytime.

And I hope your wife is feeling better and recovering well...
