Lending FAQ

One of the most important pieces to buying or selling a home is securing financing, known commonly as a mortgage.  A mortgage can be easily defined as a loan that a bank or mortgage lender gives a purchaser to help with the purchase of a home. It’s important, whether buying or selling a home, to understand the ins and the outs of mortgages.  Since the majority of people who buy a home will be in need of a mortgage, having an understanding of the most frequently asked questions can greatly reduce the confusion of obtaining a mortgage.

There are hundreds of questions regarding mortgages that are asked on a daily basis.  There is no such thing as a “dumb question” when it comes to mortgages.  There are some questions that are more frequently asked than others when it comes to mortgages and home financing.

How important is my credit score in qualifying for a loan?

Some of our products do not even look at your personal credit scores. If your credit isn’t well established, isn’t perfect or even badly damaged, we can work to find strengths in your business or finances to still make a loan possible. We know often people hit roadblocks in life, and those can sometimes hurt your personal credit scores. If you want to address what you can do to raise your personal scores, so you can widen your search when looking for funding, we can assist with personal and or business credit repair and building.
