Fred Griffin: “Sub 700 Credit Scores on the Rise” - Can You Get a Loan?

“Sub 700 Credit Scores on the Rise” - Can You Get a Loan?

Can you get a Loan if your Credit Score is lower than 700?  Mortgage Broker Joe Petrowsky says, "There are many folks coming into the Housing Market that have had a Foreclosure or Short Sale in their history.  I am doing more and more preapproval for folks that have this kind of credit history.  Unfortunately, many people are not even aware that they might qualify to buy a home again."

“Sub 700 Credit Scores on the Rise”

 

 

 

 

 

I am always tracking credit scores and how they relate to mortgages. For the last couple of months, the information reported indicates that nearly 50% of all mortgages written had sub 700 credit scores.

There are many folks coming into the housing market that have had a foreclosure or short sale in the history. I am doing more and more preapproval for folks that have this kind of credit history. Unfortunately many are not even aware that they might qualify to buy a home again.

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many folks that want to buy a home, many that have credit challenges and don’t know what they can do or how to begin the repair process. When I find someone in this kind of situation I begin the coaching process of what to do and how to do it. Once they have repaired or paid off and obligation, we have them send us the paid receipts or evidence of payment we’ll send it to the credit bureaus for them.

 

 

 

 

 

Most of those who want to be a homeowner, will be able too, if they got a little help. Reach out to these folks and let them know they can be helped.

Fred, you are so right. Still, for many who have lost a home to a short sale, or foreclosure, many fear 'dipping their toes in the water' of home ownership due to the horrible way they were treated by their lenders, the abusive collection methods used, and the stigma of being 'deadbeats'. All that and not to mention the emotional stress of losing their 'castle'. For the ones willing to try again, the results can be encouraging, and very rewarding! Thanks!
