There are loan programs for borrowers with less-than-ideal credit. Many Government mortgage programs feature flexible credit and qualification requirements, addressing some of the most common obstacles homebuyers face when purchasing a home.

Generally, an escrow account refers to the funds a borrower pays to a lender along with their principal and interest payments for the payment of real estate taxes and hazard insurance. This is also referred to as impounds. The money is held in an account to ensure it is available to the lender when payments are due.

Private Mortgage Insurance is provided to protect the mortgage lender against losses that might be incurred if a loan defaults. Most often required on Conventional mortgage loans, the cost of Mortgage Insurance is usually paid by the borrower and is most often required if the loan amount is more than 80% of the home’s value.

No, in fact we recommend getting pre-qualified for a mortgage loan before you begin your home searching process. Pre-Qualification is often a great place to start because you’ll learn exactly how much you are approved to borrow, making the process of searching for the right home much more efficient.

A Fixed Rate mortgage loan features monthly principal and interest payments that will remain the same throughout the life of the loan. An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) is a loan that allows the lender to adjust the interest rate during the term of the loan. ARM terms can be complex, you may want to consult with us  to determine if an Adjustable Rate loan is right for you.

All mortgage programs feature basic credit requirements, including credit score minimums. Your credit score, as well as the information on your credit report, are key factors in determining whether you’ll be able to get a mortgage. Errors on your credit report can affect your score, so it’s important to check your credit report and correct any errors before applying for a loan. Credit score is only one component in a mortgage lenders decision, other factors include: the amount of debt you already have, your total assets, your current income, how much you have in savings, and more.                                        Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

When applying for a mortgage loan you’ll need to gather a variety of documentation. Your Mortgage Consultant will provide you with specific information on what items are required, but this may include:

  •  Copy of driver’s license for each borrower
    • Most recent pay stub showing year-to-date (at least 30 days) earnings
    •  W2’s- 2 years
    •  Most recent asset statements covering two full month(s)
    •  Complete signed & dated Federal Tax Return including all schedules- 2 years
    •  Most recent 401K/Retirement statement- all pages
    •  Copy of last mortgage statement (for refinances)
    •  Purchase agreement signed by all parties (for home purchase transactions)

An Appraisal is a written estimate of the value of a property, prepared by a qualified appraiser. Mortgage lenders will always require a property appraisal before approving a home loan.

The most popular method of appraising a home is the “sales comparison” method. It involves examining recent home sales in the area (often called “comparables” or “comps”) and selecting the ones most like the property being appraised (the “subject property”). The subject property’s condition, construction quality and features are compared to the comps, and its value is adjusted up or down.

There is also the “income” approach which is used primarily when valuing an investment or rental property. The appraiser takes the rental income of either the subject property (if rented) or similar comps and calculates the price that would provide the rate of return a typical investor would require for a similar property.

If you have an escrow account, your monthly mortgage payment will consist of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance (P.I.T.I). Using an escrow account, your lender or servicer will pay the taxes and insurance on your behalf each month.

If you don’t have an escrow account, you will be responsible for paying your own property taxes and insurance.

There are properties in rural areas that do qualify for 100% financing with a USDA Section 502 Guaranteed Loan.  The website is: and select “Single Family Housing Guaranteed”, Accept the Property Eligibility Disclaimer and then include the full property address along with the City, State and Zip Code.  It should return if the property is or is not located in an eligible area.

There are income requirements/limits for a USDA loan.  You can visit pick your state, then select your County and then answer a few questions about the people living in your household.  Once you click next it will ask you some questions about your gross monthly income.  Once you click finish you will come to a summary screen, and it will render a determination based on the information you entered and let you know if the income meets the income limits.  For example: In most Indiana Counties the maximum income limit for a family of 4 would be $103,500 and could change annually.

In some circumstances a Homeownership Education course is required for certain mortgage loan programs.  Even if not required it is highly suggested that the course is completed especially for first time buyers.  If you would like more information, or if you would like to complete a course, you can visit  If you complete the course with a passing score of 80% or higher, the certificate you receive can be used to fulfill the education requirement for most mortgage products.                     Other course features and Benefits:  Offered to you free of charge, tracks your progress so you can pause and resume anytime, provides a 15-question end of course quiz, which you can take as many times as needed to pass, Takes 3-4 hours to complete all 7 modules, accessible from your desktop, tablet or mobile device, and you can return to your course anytime to use the tools and information as a resource, as often as you like.

Closing costs could vary from institution to institution and could also vary on the mortgage product you choose.  As an estimate only, typically closing costs could be 2% to 5% of your loan amount.

Closing costs being paid by the seller are called “seller concessions” and depending on the loan program you choose the seller can typically pay some of those costs.  You will never receive credit for more than the total of the closing costs. Seller concessions need to be listed on the signed/accepted offer to purchase / purchase agreement.  Here is an example of seller concessions for a Conventional loan.

LTV/CLTV    |    Maximum Concession
Greater than 90%    |    3%
75.01% to 90%    |    6%
75% or less    |    9%

Type  |    Maximum Concession
FHA      |    5%
USDA    |    6%
VA    |    4%
