Give Yourself a Financial Checkup
If you are looking to purchase a house then it is likely that you are also looking for a mortgage. Before you make your first appointment, AREA Title Agency, Inc. has some information to share on preparing your credit information.
Check and Correct
Seems as though the first thing that your lender will check is going to be your credit history, it’s best to beat them to it. Obtain a copy of your own report and check it thoroughly. In particular, pay attention for any errors where another person’s application may have been listed on your report, or if an address doesn’t look familiar. The idea is for you to arrive at your first appointment with a credit file that accurately reflects your financial your history.
Make It More Appealing
A lender doesn’t want to see lots of small repayments where the debt isn’t being reduced, simply held off. If you have multiple smaller debts from loans or store cards, consider consolidating them into one larger loan with manageable and forecastable repayments.
Can You Wait?
If you can see there are a few loan or store cards which you are close to paying off, consider holding off your application until you have. If you wait, when your lender reviews your credit report, there will be less outstanding debts and a record of a fully paid obligation.
