Helpful Information & Answers - Reverse Mortgage Long Island

Poor Credit? Never Give Up.

Poor Credit Doesn't Necessarily Mean "NO".

 

POOR CREDIT? Mortgage programs that can work for you.

BLEMISHED CREDIT
Has your credit rating dropped? Whatever the reason: bankruptcy, boreclosure, repossessions, late mortgage payments, late credit card payments, charge offs, or all of the above, you may be able to qualify for a mortgage.  Of course, you may need credit repair depending on your credit history and equity in your home.  But it is possible to find a loan that's right for you.  Click the link for some useful information. https://www.credit.com/credit-repair/how-to-fix-your-credit/  And here's another link that may provide real answers about repairing your credit.

ONE MORTGAGE INSTEAD OF TWO
You can use the equity in your home to consolidate your current mortgages into one single mortgage payment rather than a first mortgage and an equity loan. You might want to take a portion of the money you'll be saving each month and invest it either into your current mortgage (pay it off faster) or establish a savings fund.

REFINANCE TO CONSOLIDATE DEBT
You can consolidate debts by refinancing your home as long as there is sufficient equity. Perhaps you would like to reduce the term of your mortgage from 30 years to 15 or 20 years. You may be able to reduce your monthly payments dramatically with various mortgage programs.

Debt consolidation can provide you with a practical financial plan if you already own a home.  In contrast, credit cards charge you daily compounded interest and can range from 9% to 24% so you can actually be paying up to three times more interest on credit cards.  Start saving money instantly by refinancing and consolidating all of your debts into one low payment.  Again, you can put the savings toward paying down your mortgage.

BUYING A HOME - THE CHALLENGE
Buying a home can be an exciting time. Are you looking to be pre-qualified for a new home? Sellers want to know you can afford to buy their home. Being pre-qualified is a plus. It helps your realtor when presenting information to the seller. Your mortgage specialist can help. All information will be kept confidential

Don't rush into buying a home. Consider how will you pay for it. While it's true that renting is a waste of money that can be applied to owing a home, getting in too deep too soon is not a good idea. You must qualify with income and credit, and you must be able to afford monthly mortgage payments.

FHA LOAN PROGRAM
The Federal Housing Authority (FHA) insures loans so that lenders can offer first-time home buyers better deals. The FHA allows a down payment of 3.5 percent—significantly less than the typical 10 to 25 percent. Whitney Fite, (president of Angel Oak  Home Loans) points out that the FHA is also much more flexible when it comes to to credit score requirements. You can get an FHA loan with a credit score as low as 500, but you’ll be required to make a down payment of at least 10 percent.

Another popular allure is that the FHA allows for the down payment funds to come from gifts from family members, grants, or assistance programs. The agency is also lenient when it comes to your debt-to-income ratio, making this an ideal choice for someone with student loan debt.

Betzler, a regional sales manager at TD Bank. FHA requires two types of mortgage insurance premiums—one that’s paid upfront, and another that’s paid on a monthly basis—and your home has to meet certain standards.
