A lot of people feel the need to move right now, mostly because the real estate market is as low as possible right now. Perhaps you are having a child and looking to get more space. Perhaps you are moving in jobs and would simply like to be closer to your business. There are so many reasons why a person would move, but it’s not as easy to get the finance as if you were a first-time buyer. For those who are first type buyers you’ll want to contact your back and ask them for a loan based on the fact that you have been a customer of theirs and that you do have a good, clean record. You’ll need to consider that there are many reasons why you’ll need to get the home, but there are even more people trying to get the home for you. Keep in mind that you’ll need to shop around and pick some great lenders before you make any quick decisions. Keep in mind that every time you apply for a credit card or a loan, it does put a black mark on your credit score if you are turned down.
If you are unable to get a loan through three venders, it’s time to give up. Of course, you may not be able to afford a new home right now, however, there are a lot of changes that you can make in order to get things working in the right direction. You’ll need to consider the fact that there is so much going on right now, and you’ll need to take that step back and resituate your finances. If you were to consolidate your loans and credit cards, you’ll be able to pay off your bills quickly, keep in mind that you’ll need to keep the lines of credit open, but not use the line of credit (but for small items and only once a month). If you were to increase your credit rating then you’ll need to do the following.
First, get rid of the home that you currently have (if you are moving for job relocation issues). You may not get what you need to clear the home, so it is very important that you take your time and figure out what it is that you need to get your name and credit off the home. You’ll need to refinance and get a loan to cover the difference, but you’ll find that it’s fairly easy to get rid of a home. As for the new home, you’ll want to consider waiting some time so that you can ease your way back into the real estate market and home responsibility. You’ll find that if you simply take the step back and get yourself to an apartment, you’ll be able to build your credit rating very quickly.
For those who are first-time buyers, you’ll need to establish a job track record. Basically, you need the employed history in order to get the bank to trust you. It’s best that you do at least a year at a job before you go into the application process. Even if you have to switch jobs, it has to be because you are getting more money, or because it is in the same market. It’s like quitting a mill to go to a better mill. You’ll need to have this in order for the bank to feel comfortable taking a chance on you.
If you have bad credit, then open a line of credit. It is very important that you open a line of credit and use in small potions and have your credit cards paid off on time. You’ll find that the minute that you use your credit card it is marked on your record, as well as, each payment that you make. Not saying that one skipped payment will hurt you, but you’ll find months of skipped payments will begin to decrease your credit score.
With easy credit and by paying all of your bills, you’ll be able to increase your likelihood of getting a mortgage approval within six months.
