That said, I can probably get you pointed in a right direction. You are smart as you have 20-25% of the down payment. That is where you can get into a loan easier. That being said, lenders will still be looking at your credit. Most people who have 20 thousand dollars and live where crime is low are not people of a bad charactor, I dont know your specific situation. I suggest you find a good real estate agent- ask freinds and family or call and interview 3 agents. They will meet with you- check your local board of realtors or state licensing site to see if they are in good standing or have a record of problems. Ask the agent to refer to you a couple lenders. I recommend you get an FHA loan as that is what almost all small loans are, and when you put that much money down you can avoid exra monthly fees ( PMI). FHA has relaxed loan guidelines....still the lender will ask you to do this and that to get a formal approval. There is a pre approval, then there is a formal approval. The process to pre approval is usually one day, then you start shopping for a house, put up your deposit and write your offer, get it accepted,,,the final approval and funding is usually a month, but can vary depending on the lenders expertise and your credit situation. Dont worry about the lender pulling your credit. You screened a couple and have a good agent. Do what they recommend and you should be fine I hope this all helps [/quote] Yeah I've been saving this $30,000 for quite a few years now. I've always paid my one credit card on time so my credit is good but just not built up. I'm just hoping that doesn;t hold me back. I've been doing some minor research on real estate agents but for the most part I'm still clueless. How much would it cost to talk/interview with one and do they provide access to foreclosures in the area that are not listed on websites? [/quote] don't pay anyone to see their 'secret' list, just speak with a reputable agent in area. Also, stop in some local bank branches and inquire there. Usually a list of auctions in local papers as well. [/quote]
I officially now have $30,000 saved up to buy a new home howeber I have very little credit. I only have one Visa card that I've had about 2 years. I get many offers in the mail just havn't followed up on getting a second one yet.
But If I'm looking for homes priced around $60,000 to $80,000 and put up around $20 to $25,000 for a downpayment (including closing costs) does my credit score really matter? My goal would be to have my morgage around $350 a month or cheaper. I take home after taxes about $1,400 a month.
First time home buyer so any help GLP can offer I would greatly appreciate it.
