Re: Would I qualify for a mortgage?

I'm not an expert, but just from my experience that recent late payment is most likely going to be automatic denial for FHA loan.  In my opinion I would take the next 6 months to pay down the balances on your credit cards, this would give you a score bump.  Hopefully the collections will accept your PFD =)  I started 2 years ago with a 580 score, 16 collections, 90% utilization on my credit cards.  I'm now at 3% utilization, 2 paid collections that won't budge with goodwills, and a 712 score.  I say work at it for 6 months and you will be in a much better position for approval!  Good luck =)

I did say that I wasn't planning on app'ing until my most recent late hit the 1 yr mark, which is an FHA requirement.. :smileyhappy:

 

And your story is exactly where I expect to be this time next year as well!

Re: Would I qualify for a mortgage?

I think you would have to be prepared to write LOE for your lates and collections. You have quite a few and your underwriter will definitely have questions about those.

 

The price of the house you are looking for also appears to be a little high for your income.

 

Your plan for paying down your debt and waiting until your lates are older sounds great. Good luck!

Re: Would I qualify for a mortgage?

i dont know anything about taxes/insurance there.... so i cannot comment on det ratios.

 

but when the lates are 1yr old, you will be fine.

 

i would wnt a good letter explaining(loe) the past derogatories.

letter format:

1. what happened?

2. how did you deal with it?

3. what steps have you taken to assure it doesnt happen again.

 

the loe will want to match the credit report.
