Stop Worrying and Learn How it Can Affect Your Mortgage Options

Are you worried about your credit history? Just about everyone has something in their past credit that is less than perfect. The most important thing is to learn what is on your report, find out what impact that information has on your credit rating, and work on repairing and restoring any damage that may have been done.

Mortgage loan options are rated by credit, labeled like school grades – “A” credit is the best, then down to A-, B, C, etc. Even if you do not have an A credit rating, we can let you know what your options are if you fall into an A- or lower category. The rates are generally going to be higher and may require a down payment. If you don’t want this type of financing, then together we can map out what you need to do with your credit and finances for the next six to twelve months to qualify for an A credit loan.

There are three main credit bureaus that most creditors (such as credit card companies, banks, leasing companies, etc) provide information to on a monthly basis. Each month, your credit holders report information to the credit bureaus about your current balance, minimum payment requirements, and credit history.
