Loan Consultants Suggest What Not to do When Buying a House July 22, 2015

Loan Consultants Suggest What Not to do When Buying a House, Amherst, New York

We’ve all heard tips on what we should be doing if we were on the market for a house. This could be checking our credit score, hiring an agent, or browsing for properties online. But what exactly are some of the things that you should never do when buying a house? 

Premium Mortgage Corporation shares a few tips:

  • Don’t Send Off Any Red Flags on Your Credit Report: Even if you’re in a position to do so, a new credit card or large purchase could deter home loan providers from approving a home loan.
  • Don’t Switch Careers: A steady job equals stable income. Applicants will present themselves in a better light to financial institutions when they’ve maintained the same job for a few years.
  • Don’t Co-Sign Any Loans: Friends and family may request co-signatures with your A+ credit. Nevertheless, saying yes will jeopardize a new application for a home loan.
  • Don’t Close Any Existing Bank Accounts: This action may seem trivial, but when a bank account is closed, a mortgage underwriter will see this and question your financial process.
  • Don’t Pay Bills Late: Take all the necessary steps to pay your bills on time. Automatic bill pay is highly recommended.
