Hello Marvin,

A lender will take into account your credit score, regular income, down payment percentage, property value, previous short sales, forclosures, bankruptcies, etc in evaluating your pre-approval. Get in touch with me to connect you with a lender that can get you pre-approved for a home that's right for you.

Best Regards,

Obviously, loan amounts, fees and interest rates vary depending on the lender. Other considerations in the loan-approval process are ability to repay the loan and verifiable long-term employment (two or more years in the same industry/company). If you are approved for say, a $500,000 loan, you can expect to pay approximately 4.56% APR and $2,551 monthly. These are merely estimates, though, and you should speak to one of our real-estate professionals to explore all the options available to you.

Your pre-approval is based on your debt to income ratio, not just the credit score. You will have to complete a loan application and get your credit pulled to figure out how much you'd get pre-approved for.

Contact me through my profile if you'd like help. Thanks!

hi Marvin,
First of all, congratulation on your very good credit score. I used to be a lender, but nowadays your credit score is not as important as your debt to income ratio & assets. As we have learned in the past, it is very simple to manipulate credit scores with good habits and tricks.

My preferred lender can approve you for 50% debt to income ratio. Say you make 4k a month, that means your total monthly obligations (principal & interest, home insurance, property taxes, credit card payment(s), loan payment(s), etc.) cannot exceed 2k per month. In most cases, they will average the previous 2 years plus the current year to date income... however, if you have received a recent raise, there is room for the underwriter to be open minded and give you the higher income, and you can usually achieve this with compensating factors.

If you are not already working with a Realtor, I'd love to talk to you to see if we are going to be a match. 3 things can happen, 1. We connect and work together, 2. I like you, but you go in separate directions or 3. You like me, but I decide not to take you as my client. Either way, I would like to entertain the possibility if you contact me.

In order to get pre-approved for a mortgage, you will have to make full mortgage application. This includes but not limited to providing all your financial information, having your scores run with the 3 main credit bureaus and applying for a particular type of loan with a defined mortgage amount and anticipated purchase price. In CT, the mortgage lenders I work with will use the middle credit score of your 3 scores to determine the mortgage pricing scenarios for the type of loan you seek. Speak to a licensed mortgage originator in your area to start the process. Good luck.

Your score is just one component of how much of a loan you qualify for. You need to speak to a mortgage lender and complet an application to get a good estimate. They should also supply you with a pre-approval letter so when you find a home you want to buy, you will be ready to put in an offer.

Getting a pre-approval is more than just having a credit score. You need to speak with a mortgage lender directly, complete an application, and then the lender will give you an idea of what you're pre-approved for. In addition to credit scores, lenders look at income, assets, and debts.

You've been offered assistance by many of my colleagues...Pick a lender and start the process!

When you are ready for a Realtor to go home shopping, I'd love to help you.

Marvin, your pre-approval depends on not just your credit but also your income and assets. It's best to speak with a Loan Officer and allow them to review all necessary documents. This is the way you know for sure just what you qualify for and what your options are.

I would be more than happy to help you. Feel free to call or email me anytime. Good luck!

Hi Marvin,

your credit score is only one aspect in the qualification process. Don't get me wrong, its important! It will almost get you the top tier pricing with most lenders. BUT what will primarily shape how much you are preapproved for is your income and your debts. And what ever you do, don't let everyone here pull your credit!! Interview your loan officer for the job of helping you, pick one and roll with it.

Hi Marvin,

First, we think you mean Experion, which is one of the three credit scoring agencies.

There is not sufficient information and you should not post it here.

Lastly, an agent cannot supply what you are looking for, call 3 lenders and give them your information to get what you are seeking.

We recommend Glenda Meyer at The Lending Company. She can be reached at http://sandiegohomeloans4u.com/

Best of luck, let us know if we can assist with your purchase once you know what you can afford.

Thanks much,

Hi Marvin,

Your credit score is just a small portion of qualifying for a home loan. What even more important is how much income you have, how reliable that income is, and how much debt obligation you have. All these factors taken together will determine how much of a loan you can qualify for.

Having a 740 credit score is great to purchase a property. But the process starts with what would you like to buy, where would you like to buy and what income you have, what loan program do you want.. And much more. I have a great lender I can recommend to you.
