Buying a Home After a Foreclosure
Buying a home after a foreclosure is not an impossible task. With some careful planning and some savvy shopping, you can secure a mortgage loan even with a foreclosure in your credit history.
Wait At Least Two Years
Mortgage lenders focus on the last three years of your credit history when they consider your mortgage application. It is best to wait at least two years after a foreclosure. However, if you have a large down payment or a fairly good credit score, lenders sometimes make exceptions.
Save A Down Payment
One way to improve the terms of a mortgage loan is to have a down payment. A credit score of 600 or lower usually means you will need a down payment between 5% and 20%. Larger down payments will mean better rates. As a bonus, you can avoid PMI with a down payment of 20%.
Create Good Credit
A foreclosure doesn't mean an end to your dreams of home ownership. After a foreclosure, take steps to build back a good credit score with regular payments on your bills and loans. It is also better to make small regular payments on credit cards than hit and miss with payments. You want to show lenders that you are dependable with paying your bills.
If you do run into trouble, call the billing company and make arrangements before they report you to the credit reporting agencies. Billing companies want to see their money and are often willing work out an arrangement.
When you are ready to look for a mortgage, compare prices online. Sub prime lenders offer loans to people with bad credit, but they don't all charge the same rate. Make sure the lending company you pick offers competitive rates and fees. Mortgage websites now offer quotes from several companies, so you can pick the best financing offer.
Asking for quotes online doesn't commit you to accepting an offer. So if you are hesitant about taking on a mortgage, online websites can give you an idea of what to expect.
Mortgage websites can also process your loan application online faster than a traditional mortgage office. Once you have submitted the needed information online, the paperwork will be sent out to you for final approval and your signature.
