There are at least six items that we look at when considering your mortgage application:
- INCOME: We examine all sources of income. This helps us determine how much money is coming in on a monthly basis. As a rule of thumb, plan to spend no more than 28% of your gross income on your monthly house payment (principal, interest, taxes, insurance).
- PRESENT DEBTS: How much money do you presently owe to others (your monthly debt obligation) and to whom?
- CREDIT RATING: We’ll obtain a credit report from a credit reporting agency to find out your history with credit card companies, previous mortgages and bank loans, plus any public records dealing with financial matters. This is standard financial practice.
- DOWN PAYMENT: How much have you set aside for the down payment? Will it be a gift from a relative? There are other options for additional funding that we can help you explore if needed.
- ASSETS: After you’ve made the down payment and paid all closing costs, how has this affected your net worth?
- APPRAISAL: A certified appraiser must evaluate the house you plan to purchase, to determine the maximum loan amount.
