There could be many reasons for this rejection.
Meet with another mortgage professional with good reputation to seek "second" opinion.
Request your credit report and the appraisal copy, and show them to your "second" opinion pro.
Once you know the reasons, ask for the ways to cure the problem.
Do what is suggested, step by step.

If you need the money asap though, and you can't wait, and other mortgage pros can't
do the refi at this time, only then - go with a hard money lender.
Use the hard money lender as the absolutely last resort (they are expensive).

Best of luck,

Hope this helps,

Irina Karan answered:
Yes, reversed mortgage is great for those in retirement where the property is paid off,
and there is enough equity. It's like the "payback" time. The check comes back to the owner, instead of the owner paying the bank (hence, reversed).

However, some companies were overcharging seniors, so, like with everything else,
choose wisely and verify credentials.

Hope this helps,

Our market has been so volatile throughout the course of the past six years, those who may have equity in their homes (profitable refinancing opportunities) may just still be considering when would be the best time to make a move or which move to make regarding their real assets, whether selling or refinancing. ... more

Meg Sahdala answered:
Improving a credit score is nothing more than making payments on time, keeping balances low on revolving credit, not closing unused credit card accounts, don't open new accounts in an attempt to increase the credit score, don't open accounts too rapidly.
I heard of several people that paid down their loans and their credit score actually went down. Its based on the algorithm. Apparently the algorithms used by the FICO are not programed to distinguish between people who have had installment loans and those who have never had an installment loan. Once the loan is paid off, the computer thinks you have never had a installment loan and scores you that way. I hope it helps...

Miekeba Jones answered:
Hi Landesegal, credit does play an important role. With good credit the FHA home loan requires 3.5% down. A conventional loan would be around 20% down. If you are unable to qualify for either than a last resort may be a hard money lender for 35% down. If you want to put down 50%, it is totally up to you. ... more

Marco Torres answered:
Hello George,
Closing cost is associated with the fees of of your lender, all fees related to the property and title, and government fees and taxes. It is very difficult to give an exact number because it depends on so many factors but as rule anywhere from 4% to 6 % of your purchasing price.
Your lender will give a good faith estimate on your closing cost.
Please feel free to call me for any questions.
Good luck hunting,

Good Morning Mr. Hugo,

As realtors we are not allowed to provide legal advise to buyers or sellers. What we can do is offer suggestions to you on helping you navigate through this mess. This is a clear case in which you will have no choice but to contact a real estate attorney to review the contract that was executed and he/she can then advise you of what your rights are under the contract. Depending on how your contract was written and who holds the escrow deposit that will allow your attorney to guide you on what the steps are in your specific situation. I do have a real estate attorney that I work with that I can suggest for you, please feel free to contact me and I can forward that information to you.
