Loan Approvals Get Tougher in 2014

Loan Approvals Get Tougher in 2014

New mortgage approval requirements in 2014 could make it harder for you to buy a home.  In fact, you may want to make your purchase in the next 30 days if you are:

Other homebuyers who will likely be impacted negatively include those who rely on commissions, bonuses, or overtime pay for income and those who still owe on student loans.

In fact, most home-buyers will feel the impact of new regulations because lenders tend to be conservative when new regulations go into effect. They’ll likely err on the side of caution as they evaluate your:

1. Monthly Debt to Income ratios (43% or less)
2. Current debt obligations: credit cards, car loans, student debt, alimony, child support, etc.
3. Current or realistically expected income or assets (such as bonuses or overtime).
4. Current employment status (and length of employment).
5. Monthly payment for the property.
6. Monthly payment on miscellaneous loans.
7. Monthly payment for related obligation, such as the Condo or Homeowner’s Association, insurance, and taxes.
8. Credit history.

Since some people who qualify for a loan today will not qualify sixty days from now, it simply makes sense to buy in December before the new loan requirements go into effect. Contact me today if you’d like the contact information for Crofton area lenders my clients have recommended or if you have any questions for me about real estate in the greater Crofton area.
