A lot of people believe there is no hope for them to be able to own a home if they have bad credit. But that’s not true at all. While purchasing a home with a low credit score does make things a bit more difficult, it is still possible to buy a home, even with a low credit score. It is not uncommon for people to get a mortgage with a higher rate of interest and start paying it off sooner rather than later, and this will help them to get ahead financially.
The first step is to get your situation evaluated by a bad credit mortgage broker and or lender. This process is called a pre-approval. To obtain a pre-approval, our mortgage broker would first need to review your credit report, see how much income you have, and dig into your story to determine where you are in your home purchase process. We will be able to determine what type of mortgage option you are eligible to get based on that information.
What are the steps involved in buying a home?
When you are ready to buy a home with bad credit, you need to make sure that you are working with a company in this area that can evaluate your situation through a “Pre-Approval” process.
How Does Buying a House with Bad Credit Work?
Down payment will certainly be necessary. Mortgage lenders consider bad credit mortgages to be higher risks, so to compensate for this additional risk, they generally require higher down payments on mortgages with bad credit. There are likely to be several options available to you if you have 20% or more to put down. You might encounter difficulty getting mortgage approval with only 5% down and a bad credit score, and if you have even a minor problem with your credit, you might not be approved for a mortgage. For us to be able to offer you a loan, we need to know exactly what information is on your credit, and what amount of down payment you will be required.
After getting pre-approved, you will be able to know what your spending limit is on a house, what your down payment will need to be, what interest rates you will be able to get, and what your monthly payments are. The mortgage broker can also give you a step-by-step plan on how you can correct your credit so that you are able also to give you a step-by-step plan on how to fix up your credit to get a better mortgage in the future.
