Do You Qualify For A Mortgage for Franklin TN Real Estate?

Do You Qualify For A Mortgage for Franklin TN Real Estate? That is a very pressing question.  The lenders are now under more and  more pressure as the federal government puts into place guidelines and rules around the Qualified Mortgage (meaning that loans are expected to be repaid).  So Carey Ann Cyr and her team at CMG Financial are going to be looking closely at your application and the loan products to make sure they meet these guidelines and that the borrower is in a position to repay the loan.  She shared a blog post with us today about how to qualify for a Franklin TN real estate Mortgage and we want to pass this information along to you.
 
 
A mortgage is a financial agreement between a lender and an individual that is hoping to purchase a home. The lender will pay for the Franklin TN home and the home buyer will need to pay the lender back, over the course of several years including interest. Not everyone does qualify to have a home loan like this but many do. This has become the standard way of purchasing a home in the United States. While it may not be the most affordable, as it is always more affordable to pay off the home in one payment, it is an easy process and one that can allow more people to own the Franklin TN home of their dreams.
 
What makes you qualify for a mortgage has a lot to do with the type of life you are leading financially. The lender of this home loan will want to make sure that you can actually pay for it. They will want to insure that the home will be able to be paid for today and into the future. To do this, they will look at several aspects of the potential home buyer.
 
The first thing that they will look at is the work history of the individual or individuals looking to purchase the home. They are looking to find out if they have employment and if they have had it over the course of their adult life. If they have steady employment, this is ideal as it shows that an individual is less of a risk of not being employed. Of course having a job shows that you have the money coming in so to pay off the home mortgage .
 
Next, the lender will look at the amount of money coming into the potential home buyer as opposed to what his bills are. Here, they are looking to make sure that there is enough income coming in to pay off the monthly payments that a home loan has. The debt to income ratio that they are looking for is vitally important because if there is not enough coming in, they are likely to default on the loan.
 
The credit score of the home owners is also very important. If you are a new homeowner, one that has never had a home before, you should insure that your credit score is high. This tells the lender of the mortgage just how responsible you are with your debts. Someone that has no credit or poor credit is more of a risk to the lender then the other guy that has good credit. If you have owned a home before, the lender of the home loan will want to look at how well you paid down your past home loans. The better that you do this, the better your qualifications for obtaining this type of loan are.
 
In the end, each lender will have a different set of rules as to what is okay and what is not. The good news is that you can get no obligation loan quotes easily, right on the web to allow you to see if you do qualify as well as how much of a loan you qualify for. A mortgage is a serious commitment that only the people that can afford it should take on.
