Denver, Colorado – Buyers who want to finance the purchase of their home should rethink carefully what they do financially in the time between obtaining their first conditional loan approval and the time they close on their new home.
Lenders are facing more regulations for underwriting mortgages. These standards will certainly ensure that buyers will need to do more than fog a mirror to get a loan.
If you’re considering purchasing a home, here’s what you’ll need to know:
The best advice of all is to utilize a loan officer who clearly knows the guidelines, and who can advise you throughout the process. Use a loan officer in the community you’ll be buying in. Out-of-state lenders rarely know or understand the nuances of closing loans in another state. We see more delayed and messed up closings with out-of-state lenders than for any other reason. Now, buyers themselves may cause delays (and be at risk of losing their deposit) if they don’t heed the warning to leave well enough alone when it comes to their credit and employment.
