Things to consider before meeting with a lender…
✔️ Credit Score: The higher the score, the more purchasing power you have. Plus, you could possibly obtain better interest rates and lower fees.
✔️ Job stability / Income.
✔️ Debt to Income Ratio.
✔️ Installment Loans & Credit Cards: No late payments during the last 12 months. Create a budget to help pay your bills on time.
✔️ No unpaid collections, Judgements or Tax Liens.
✔️ Pay credit cards down. Pay off if possible, but don’t close them.
✔️ Avoid applying for any new credit within 3-6 months of applying for a home loan.
✔️ Bankruptcy – Possibly qualify after 2 years from being discharged (ask your lender)
