Is Good Credit Necessary To Buy A Home?

Jun 12, 2008
For those who want to purchase a home or to refinance the home they already have and have a bad credit score, there is still hope! The industry that provides mortgages has a wide reach and more things to offer than many people know about. It is not necessary to go to the local bank to procure your mortgage and to know that perfect credit is all they will accept.

Thousands of lenders for mortgages are available throughout America. They are more commonly referred to as wholesale lenders because they offer special programs for those individuals who want to borrow money who have less than perfect credit. These lenders are the ones that work with a broker who has wholesale customers ready to purchase.

Brokers do not lend money themselves, but are the ones to turn to for knowledge and education on the process of obtaining a mortgage from the start to the finish. Brokers can also help find a lender that will be perfect in providing you with the exact needs you require. The broker will have the ability to access hundreds of lenders across the United States at one time. They will have the resources to find a lender that can accommodate your specific credit needs and a decent down payment you can afford to make no matter what your credit score might be. Brokers are always ready to compete for business so sit back and let them fight for your business.

Financing on less than perfect credit is also a possibility but you can expect to see a larger amount asked for the down payment. The lower the credit score, the higher the down payment will be. Ten percent is the norm for a standard finance but can go as high as 35% for those with bad credit under 500. Some mortgage lenders will ask for half the money down before they will agree to lend you the remaining amount.

Some of the time, a larger down payment for a bad credit loan can work to the advantage of the buyer. For those who put more than 20% on a loan, the private mortgage insurance is not needed and it can reduce the interest paid over the life of a smaller loan. Applying online for a bad credit loan is easy as there are many places to choose from. Many will give you there preapproval determination within minutes of applying.

This type of loan will show you what you can afford every month and the type of budget you should be following to get the amount of money you want no matter if you are approved for the bad credit loan or not. The important last step to applying online is to keep in mind that the application form should be completed correctly and it should be looked at over again to make sure there are no errors in it.

All items need to be filled in and spelling should be correct. This will reduce the problems in trying to match the information on your credit history that could slow or stop the entire process from happening as it should. It can even cause you to be denied.
