Hi Agmwoodworking,

You could purchase this with conventional or FHA financing, as both allow a family member to co-sign on the mortgage and be add more qualifying income. We help people out in this situation quite often. Feel free to contact me.

Hi Trackhead,

Your best option is to work with a lender that will take the time to walk you through what you need to do to raise your scores. FHA for example will require a 10% down payment if your score is under a 580 so it really is in your best interest to work on your credit.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Your income and credit scores are just 2 pieces of the puzzle. It is important that you take the next step and meet face-to-face with a mortgage professional and make sure that you fully qualify for a loan, and if so, how much of a loan you qualify for. It's really difficult if not impossible to know what and how much you qualify for without being able to review all the necessary documents. Need to know how much debt you carry on your credit, what your credit score and history is like, what areas are you looking so we could get an idea of the what the property taxes could be, do you claim any unreimbursed expenses in your tax returns? etc. There is just much more that comes into play here.

Take the next step and meet with a mortgage professional. I would be happy to schedule a meeting in our Farmingdale or Bellmore office. I could tell you exactly what documents you will need and review everything connected to the mortgage process specific to your situation. It all happens face-to-face in one very informative and educational meeting. Feel free to call or email me anytime. Good luck!

You know the 43% DTI is primarely for non conforming (non GSE loans). Fannie/Freddie/Ginnie are not subject to this (at least for the next 7 years). That being said some lenders are implementing this accross the board.

Some of us will still be going of DU/LP findings.

In this situation best way would be to have the contractor finance all the cost of remodeling or seek a stand alone construction/remodeling loan from lenders. Depending on your overall situation even FHA 203K home renovation loan may make sense. There is no lenders that I can think of that will simply give you a 100% LTV HELOC or Home Equity, most you may be able to get is 85 CLTV.

The answer to this question can honestly go either way and will depend greatly on your income, credit score, and debt to income ratio. It will be best for you to speak to a licensed mortgage professional to answer this specifically to your situation. ... more

Cristina Callegari answered:
Hi Sonia, without much information the short answer is yes. However, you really should sit down with a licensed mortgage professional and have a pre-approval done. Typically, if you have negative things on your credit, but your debt to income ratios are good and your overall credit score is above 620 you can still get a mortgage. A mortgage professional will be able to advise you about those blemishes on your credit. Some of them might be easier to have removed than you think, and a mortgage professional can also advise you on the banks criteria for lending which will help you get on track for the future if you are unable to qualify for a loan at the moment. I wish you the very best of luck in your home search, and if you need help finding the right home I will be happy to do so. ... more

JTSW answered:
One consideration I don't see identified below: I have owned three houses, including the one I am getting ready to sell now. I owned my first house for just seven years out of the 30-year amortization period, so my EFFECTIVE interest rate was MUCH, MUCH higher than the nominal 5.75% rate it WOULD have been IF I had owned the house for thirty years -- and this will almost always be the case because mortgage lenders "front-load" interest payments in their amortization / interest payment schedules, and they do so precisely because mortgagors [like me] almost never hold the mortgage for its entire term, resulting in a MUCH, MUCH higher rate-of-return for the mortgage lender. The same thing happened with my second house, and the same thing is about to happen with my third house -- in fact, on this 15-year fixed rate loan, I have paid almost all of the interest due on the entire note in just three years! Three great loans for the banks; three crummy deals for me. So, for everyone who does not realistically expect to own their home for the entire term of the loan -- and how many of us realistically expect to stay in that house for thirty years? -- their EFFECTIVE interest rate is NOT simply the lender's offered APR minus the (currently available, but for how much longer?) mortgage interest tax deduction.

Rather, their EFFECTIVE interest rate would be: (1) the SUM of (a) the total amount of interest they will pay under the proposed mortgage -- ask for the amortization / interest payment schedule -- over the number of years they realistically expect to stay in the house, PLUS (b) any finance charges ["points"] and other closing costs, if they are significant, MINUS (c) the total value of the (currently available, but for how much longer?) mortgage interest tax deduction over the number of years that they realistically expect to stay in the house; DIVIDED BY (2) the number of years that they realistically expect to stay in the house. It is this, EFFECTIVE interest rate, that should be compared with alternative investments and their expected rates of return, as well as the psychological "sleep at night" factors discussed elsewhere, when deciding whether to pay cash for a house, or to finance it.
