qualify for a home loan after foreclosure

Posted on: 29th Mar, 2010 03:07 pm
I got a foreclosure on 2/2007 due to a financial hardship, having said that I have collections for my unpaid credit cards (3) in total all charged off and now I am ready to rebuild my credit, where do I start to qualify again for a house?
Hi lisvet!

Welcome to forums!

With a charged off account on your credit report, lender will not be ready to give you a loan. You should first start paying off the collection account.You can negotiate with the collection agency and get a payment plan for it. Paying off the collections will also help you in improving your score to some extent. Thus, it would become easier for you to qualify for a loan.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

I decided to give my home back after suffering an illness after the birth of my son. My husband could not afford the house payments. We gave the house and car back. I have recently paid the difference in the car. I am back to work making 34/hr . I have been a nurse for 12yrs and always worked except for my illness. Can I get a home loan for approx 40,000

Hi Guest,

Did you apply for a short sale in order to get rid of your previous property? If yes, then you'll have to wait for at least 2-3 years in order to get a new loan.

If you have a substantial down payment you can go to what is called a hard money lender. You will pay more interest, but these types of lenders look at the equity you have in the property rather than your credit. In the mid 1980's regular lenders were charging 18% to people with good credit. Hard money lenders at 11% don't look too bad from that perspective.

Hi Tim,

You may qualify for a lesser amount of mortgage. If you have the required credit score, income and employment history, you should contact the local lenders and apply for a mortgage.

Hello, I would like to know if a foreclosure in 2007 will prevent me from getting a new mortgage? (FHA or 203K Loan) Also, if 3 people can apply for the mortgage if this is a more helpful or more hurtful to applying for loan. 2 of the people have existing mortgages that are rent for option to buy, can both people be used on a new mortgage since they already have a mortgage? Any solutions or lenders would be greatly appreciated....

Hi Tutty,

I don't think such an old foreclosure will create any problem for you if you have taken proper steps to improve your credit and financial situation. Situation will be same irrespective of how many people apply for a loan.

Hi bokar!

Welcome to the forums!

With a 560 credit score, it will be difficult for you to qualify for any kind of loan. You will have to wait till your scores reach 620. Once you're there, you can at least qualify for a FHA loan.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
