I have a great recommendation if your concerned about your credit report and score. Call 1-800-368-4193 make sure you ask for Alicia. Worked with her last year to help remove inaccurate items on my credit report. When I was first referred to her my score was 480, 432 & 466 after 1 month it went up 39 points and in about 5 months 109 points. She is very knowledgeable on ways to legally make both the credit bureaus and creditors do the right thing, and in doing so the items fell off my credit report its been 9 months now I'm at 755 750 and 720 with Experian, but I'm still a satisfied client all I did was follow her advice. Oh she also has portal access so I saw exactly what was being done with my credit and I was able to message her when I had questions from within the portal. ... more

Decent credit, job history in the same field or some company for two years, monthly bills (only credit cards and loans) to income ratios to fit into the banks minimum standards (typically 50% or lessof your income before taxes going to all your credit/loan bills PLUS your potential new mortgage payment), 3% down payment unless you qualify for a specialty loan 'Utah Housing' or otherwise. Although it's probably smarter to save the 3% down payment rather than using those specialty loan programs. These are the basics my friend! Good luck! ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
It wouldn't be a bad idea, but your home was built prior to GFCI outlets were code. Given how inexpensive it is to swap out a few outlets (and safer for you) there's no compelling reason why you shouldn't.

Codes change almost daily and there is no requirement for older homes to be current with your municipalities current codes, however if you are improving or renovating or adding on to your home, then you will be required to bring these areas up to current code as a condition of your permit.

Marie Larsen answered:
I suggest waiting until your home is purchased before cosigning on another loan. Your current score is good but you do not want to incur anymore debt that will reduce your buying power. Why are you waiting to buy a home? The government is still offering incentives if you have something under contract by April 30th, the interest rates are still record low and the home prices are reasonable. Please give me a call and we can go over the details. I am local Salt Lake Valley realtor and have all the info that you would need to make an educated decision.
