Mortgage After Bankruptcy

   By: Tim S

Most people probably assume that obtaining a mortgage to purchase a home, refinance or to consolidate debt after a bankruptcy is out of the question. In fact, many people are able to obtain these mortgage services, even 1 day after a bankruptcy discharge in some cases. Loan programs and lenders are available that require little or no time after the discharge of a bankruptcy. Here are a few tips to speed up the road to credit recovery and the mortgage services you desire.

First, continue timely paying on items such as your home and cars that were not discharged in the bankruptcy. Having at least a couple credit items you are paying on- time will help. Second, limit the amount of other debts such as credit cards or bank loans. Too much debt will make it more difficult to qualify for a loan, particularly revolving credit accounts such as credit cards. Your debt-to-income ratio is one part of the puzzle lenders will look at in determining your ability to repay a mortgage.

Another important aspect is providing all necessary documents in a timely manner to your loan consultant. Items such as paystubs and tax returns are generally needed in order to establish your income and show the ability exists to repay the loan. Information on your credit report needs to be checked for accuracy. Items that you feel are inaccurate need to be disputed in writing with the three major credit repositories. (Equifax, Experian and Trans Union). This may take persistence to ensure the items are removed appropriately. The removal of this inaccurate information will help establish a more favorable debt-to-income ratio and make the process of qualifying for a loan easier. Finally, if you are unable to qualify for a loan initially, do not despair. Sometimes this process requires a little patience. Follow the tips mentioned earlier and more options are usually available 6 months to a year after the bankruptcy discharge. Your Amerinet Loan Consultant can help guide you through this process
