Your Questions About Check My Mortgage Loan

Ruth asks…

I applied for mortgage in February of 2003? I’m only 18!?

Ok, so I had posted a question about half an hour ago about building up my credit, then began searching through answers. Found someone wanting to check their credit score, and found a link ‘www.annualcreditreport’ I believe.

So, I went on and applied for my free report. In the first step, for Equifax, I entered all of my information, then it said it wanted to confirm if it was really me and provided two questions for me to answer. The question was something like this –

“In february of 2003, you applied for a mortgage loan, what bank gave you this loan” Or something like that, and provided about 7 different companies with chex boxes next to them and I was to pick one, I don’t recall EVER applying for any loan as I am currently 18, that would make me 13-14 at the time, so I checked “none of the above”. The 2nd question asked me what was the term, with a amount of months starting with I think 120 months and higher.

How can I look into this further? I’m really worried.
Ok, so how can I receive my credit reports from the agencies?

admin answers:

It’s part of the questions they ask to make sure you are who you say you are.

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

If you didnt apply for a mortgage, then that is NOT one of the answers. Odds are you arent going to find anything unless you have gotten into debt in your name (which is unlikely since you cannot legally enter into a binding agreement before 18)

To qualify, must have banking industry background. Will also administer a test given online to determine qualifications. Apply directly today to be considered!

The reason i’m asking the initial question is because I’ve applied for other positions and the qualifications that were listed matched my experiences but when I received a call back they stated they are looking for specifics which I don’t have.

Just don’t want to get my hopes up.

admin answers:

An easy way to get through the mystery of these types of postings is that once you actually have an interview or ability to talk to someone directly ~ ask the question. What specific skills are you looking for for this position.

Most of the time they will answer if asked.

I would think since you have some time in the bank already (teller) that you’d be a candidate for an interview at least

Donna asks…

FHA mortgage loans & limits?

We are looking into buying a new house in the mid-$400k’s before we sell our current home, but this means that we would need a larger loan and that we would have less cash available up front for closing costs and downpayment. Buying before we sell our home means that after all the closing costs, we would only have 3.5% – 4.5% as a down payment.

I don’t want to give my state/city-county because that is too much personal information for a Q&A site, but I already checked and the HUD website’s FHA loan limits in the area where we would buy the new house are: FHA Forward $271,050 ($280,000) —AND— Fannie/Freddie $417,000. Depending on the offer that is accepted, we’d need to borrow between $425,000 and $435,000, and again, we’d have 3.5% and 4.5% for a down payment (after we pay closing costs).

We’ve talked to 2 lenders who only discussed FHA loans since apparently only FHA loans will allow as small as a 3.5% – 4.5 % downpayment:

(1) Lender #1 told us we have no choice but to get a conventional loan since we cannot get an FHA loan for more than $280,000 — end of story. He said there is absolutely no FHA loan available for loans over $280,000. As for non-FHA loans, Lender #1 said there is a cap for conventional loans of $417,000, and even then, we’d have to have a 12% down payment. In other words, we MUST sell ours first to have enough cash for closing/down payment.

(2) Lender #2 said we can borrow up to $450,000 on an FHA loan as long as we have a 3.5% down payment because our debt-to-income ratio is good enough. He said there is no $280,000 or $417,000 limit on FHA loans when the loan is a jumbo (aka, “non-conforming”) FHA loan. The debt-to-income ratio is all that matters.

What?! Something seems really wrong with what we’ve been told since the two lenders seem to contradict each other on the FHA “facts.” We understand that different lenders will only finance conventional loans under the terms they set, but the FHA rules are rules – they can’t be different from lender to lender?

Can someone explain and make some sense out of this?
Add’l details: The house is NOT in a high-cost area.
Answers #1 & #2 have already responded to my questions on point, but if others want to respond, please feel free to do so. Don’t be misled by GVD’s lack of comprehension, though; I’m not looking for rate quotes, I’m clearly not soliciting a loan from anyone on this site, & I’m intelligent enough to have provided the accurate limit information in my question. Thus, you may rely on my facts to provide answers to my questions.

admin answers:

Since you did your homework and lender 1 basically confirmed what you found out, you know that lender 2 is pulling your chain. FHA county loan limits apply to any FHA loan so it’s not something a lender can arbitrarily change or ignore.

Since you know that you are not in a high cost area, your loan will be capped at $417,000 for any conventional financing. This means you can buy at $435,000,00 and as long as you can put 5% (which is the minimum for a conventional mortgage) down you fall just under the $417,000 limit.

I have a question for you. You said you will have 3.5 to 4.5% available for a down payment after you pay closing costs. Are you talking about the closing costs on the home you’re selling or the home you want to buy? If it’s the home you want to buy, ask for seller concessions to cover your closing costs which frees up more money for your down payment.
If you have any assets that you can liquidate that may help cover your down payment as well.

Helen asks…

I did business with Yorkmills Financial, have you?

I received a call from Yorkmills financial saying i was approved for a $100,000 mortgage loan. I was shocked, cause everyone else was not approving me!

Susan asks…

Mortgage Approval Process – Which step am I on?

So I went to the bank and applied for an FHA mortgage loan. All they did was open their public online bank site and filled out my information for a loan. That was a week and a half ago. They just sent me something that looks like an FHA consent form, I’m not sure, and a copy of my credit scores 800 average, that’s it. It doesn’t say anything about the progress.

I’m just wondering which step I’m on. Am I still applying or have they already did their check, approved, and just need to verify some information?
I also got a business card from the person that’s doing the paperwork, but I’m scared to call and ask 🙂

admin answers:

You are in the beginning stage of the loan process. You have a card of the person that is in charge of doing your loan. This person is now your employee. This person should be willing to answer any questions about the stage your mortgage is in and what else is necessary for you to get an approval.

Call today, not tomorrow, ask for your loan consultant, he is listed on your business card sent to you.

In order to find out the type of loan programs you are qualified for you will have to fill out a loan application, with a mortgage broker, which you can find one in your local telephone book.

Make sure this mortgage broker or mortgage banker is able to do government loans such as FHA and VA loans if you qualify for one.

He will fill out this application, which takes awhile so grab your favorite beverage and sit down. Once you have completed the application, he will run your credit report which will have your credit scores. These credit scores will determine your interest rate.

The amount of your monthly debt payments you are required to pay as per your credit report and the amount of mortgage you can take on based on your income will determine the amount of house you will be able to purchase.

When you speak with the mortgage broker you will need the following documents to complete the loan application, there will be others, but this will get you started.

#1 One month of pay stubs for each person that will be on the mortgage.

#2 Six months bank statements from each bank in which you bank as well as statements from any 401K from you place of employment.

#3 Two years of federal income tax along with the W-2 that match.

Once he has all that he need to do he can then issue you a pre-approval letter so you can purchase a home. In this pre-approval letter will be the amount of house you are qualified to purchased.

Once he gives you this pre-approval you may now find a real estate agent to find yourself a home or he might have a referral.

Now make sure before you get your pre-approval you and your mortgage broker go over all your options as to the mortgage programs you qualify for, the interest rate, monthly payments.

If you are getting a FHA, fixed rate, two loans to eliminate PMI like an 80/20 or one loan, if you are qualified for and approved for a 100% loan.

You should select the loan that best suit your financial condition at the time. That could be an adjustable rate loan. It could be a fixed rate loan for 5 or 10 years and then adjust. Some adjustable rate mortgages only adjust once.

Make sure your mortgage broker explain all your options so you may make an intelligent decision.

What might be good for one person might not be good for you, in other words just because your friends and all your real estate buddies are telling you about the great fixed rate they got, your financial situation might call for something else.

So select the best option for you and your financial situation.

You should also get a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) which will indicate the cost you will have to pay for getting this loan. It will also indicate the amount of your down payment.

Once you have found a home the real estate agent will then prepare a contract for you and the seller to sign.

Your mortgage broker will now order an appraisal to show proof of the property value.

The mortgage broker might ask for additional information or documentation, don’t get all up tight this is normal, just supply the information or find the documents needed.

After the appraisal has been completed you will be called by your mortgage broker to sign your loan docs so you can take possession of your new home.

Before signing any loan docs make sure they say exactly what you and your mortgage broker went over when you decided on what mortgage program was best for you.

I hope this has been of some use to you, good luck

How much compensation is there in selling mortgage insurance?

I know the average payouts on simple things– mortgages, some insurance products… but I don’t know how much money a person makes for selling mortgage insurance.

Michael asks…

How do you calculate private mortgage insurance for a home loan?

I am looking to buy a home and because I am putting less than 20% down I was told I have to pay private mortgage insurance, I am wondering what is the calculation in order to determine what my monthly payment of pmi will be for a loan of $115, 000.

admin answers:

Private Mortgage Insurance rates are usually set by the insurance company insuring the loan which is calculated with consideration to how much of the loan needs to be insured. In the case of an FHA loan (government insured), you pay part of your PMI upfront (1.5% of the loan amount) and the rest (.5%/12) in your monthly payment. On an FHA loan of $115,000 you would $1725 at closing plus a monthly PMI of $47.92. Plan on $67.03-$86.25 extra per month if not an FHA loan (.7%-.9% divided by 12 months).

Lizzie asks…

Is my mortgage insurance allowed to contact me?

I have been defaulting for some time on my mortgage. After being contacted many times by the loss mitigation department; now, it’s my lender’s insurer that is calling me.

I don’t have any ties with my lender’s insurance. Theoretically, they are not my insurance, they insure my lender.

Are they legally allowed to contact me? Can I sue for that?

admin answers:

If you don’t make your payments EVERYONE is allowed to contact/call you and even sue you.
Knock knock … Pay up !!

What is an FHA Loan?

An FHA loan is a Florida loan insured against default by the FHA. In other words, the FHA guarantees that a Florida mortgage lender won’t have to write off a loan if the Florida home loan applicant defaults on the home loan – the FHA will pay the lender from the insurance premium collected. Because of the FHA home loan guarantee, Florida home loan lenders are willing to make more loans with less stringent qualifying.

Minimal Downpayment Requirements – FHA mortgages can work with as little as 3.5% down and those funds can come from a family member, charity, or your employer. Although the Florida FHA loan does not have a zero down mortgage option yet, you will find that your 1st Continental Mortgage loan officer can point you to many Downpayment assistance programs that work well with Florida FHA home loans.

Less than A-1 Credit is Okay – The Florida FHA home loan program exists to expand the pool of home buyers. Even borrowers with prior bankruptcies or mortgage lates get approved every day for FHA mortgages to buy or Refinance homes in Hillsborough County or any of the other Florida counties we serve. The FHA loan program uses credit quality, not credit score!

Lower Cost Over the Life of the Loan – The Florida FHA home loan rates are extraordinarily competitive. FHA’s lower risk to the lender means a better rate for the borrower.

How do FHA Loans Work?

The FHA promises to pay Florida lenders if a borrower defaults on an FHA loan. To fund this obligation,  FHA charges borrowers a fee. Home buyers who use FHA loans pay an upfront mortgage insurance premium (MIP) of 1.75% of the loan amout financed into the purchase. They also charge a monthly premium of .55% If a borrower defaults on an FHA loan, the FHA uses collected insurance premiums to pay off the mortgage.

Why Not Use an FHA Loan to purchase a Florida home?

You may find that FHA loans are not for you. An FHA loan may not offer enough money if you need a large mortgage. In addition, the upfront mortgage insurance premium (and ongoing premiums) can cost more than private mortgage insurance.

In many cases, you can still buy a house with a very little down using a standard loan (not an FHA loan). In particular, home buyers with good credit can find competitive offers that beat FHA loans.

FHA loans are fell out of grace for a few years, but since 2005 have rebounded! It’s an institution that has been around for a long time, since June 27, 1934. The Department of Housing & Urban Development folded the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) under its umbrella in 1965.

FHA loans began to lose favor in the late 1990s, when home values began to inch upwards, surpassing FHA mortgage limits, and sellers balked at FHA’s stringent appraisal guidelines.

How FHA Loans Work
Now, FHA does not make loans or guarantee loans. It insures loans. The insurance removes or minimizes the default risk lenders face when buyers put down less than 20 percent. Without further approval from FHA, its approved lenders are authorized to:

Take loan applications Process loan applications Underwrite and close the loan

Florida FHA Loans Allow a Blemished Credit History
If your credit is less than perfect, FHA might be the loan for you. You may qualify for an FHA loan even though you have had past financial problems.

FICO scores can be lower than those for a conventional loan. Bankruptcy. You can obtain an FHA loan two to three years from the date of your bankruptcy discharge, as long as you’ve maintained good credit since your debts were discharged. Foreclosure. If you keep your credit in excellent shape since a foreclosure, an FHA loan will be available to you two to three years from the final date of your foreclosure.

FHA Loans Demand Fewer Repairs
At one point, FHA repair demands were so excessive that sellers would discount the list price to buyers who would agree to obtain conventional loans over Florida FHA loans. Today the requirements appear more reasonable.

Defective roofs that leak still need to be replaced but an older roof does not necessitate replacement if it doesn’t leak. Windows that stick upon opening or have cracked panes do not require replacement. FHA appraisals do not take the place of a home inspection, never have. Buyers should still obtain a professional home inspection.

Florida FHA loans are available to first-time home buyers and low- to moderate-income buyers. However, there are no income limit qualifications.

FHA loans are Gaining Florida Market Share

FHA loans in Florida are gaining Florida market share at an incredible pace.  Four years ago very few sellers would accept an offer from an FHA buyer who wanted to take advantage of an  FHA mortgage loan in Florida.  This is because it was a sellers market.  In fact most Florida sellers wouldn’t accept an offer where the home was not sold, “as is”.  This meant that the Florida buyer would be responsible for any repairs and all repairs  needed to the property uncovered in the home inspection.  Since Florida sellers would just kill the contract, wait 2 weeks and more than likely have a higher offer from a Florida buyer willing to pay more.

 

The Florida home buyer the FHA program can simplify the purchase of a home, making financing easier and less expensive than a conventional mortgage loan product. Some highlights of the Florida FHA loan program include:

Minimal Down Payment and Closing costs. Down payment less than 3% of Sales Price Gifts are allowed Seller can credit up to 6% of sales price towards closing and prepaid costs. 100% Financing available No reserves required. FHA regulated closing costs. Easier Credit Qualifying Guidelines such as: No minimum FICO score or credit score requirements. FHA will allow a home purchase 1 year after a Bankruptcy. FHA will allow a home purchase2 years after a Foreclosure.

FHA loans in Florida were less than 5% of the Florida market back then.  Today most Florida sellers didn’t want to be responsible for a tougher FHA appraisal that most Florida FHA loans were known for.  In today’s Florida real estate market most sellers would be happy for any offer.  Since it is a Florida buyers market now the added an FHA appraisal requirements no longer are an impediment to a offer being accepted.  FHA loans across Florida now make up over 30% of the market.  It is even higher in some Florida places.

 With Florida FHA loans being more popular, Florida realtors and Florida closing agents and Florida mortgage companies are getting more comfortable with them.  This is great for Florida homebuyers since they have some protections that most other loans do not have.  These include streamline refinances and an assumable feature.  Conventional loans do not have these same advantages.  Also most conventional loans now require at least  10% down payment compared to a 3.5% down payment for FHA loans in Florida.

FHA loans in Florida also have another big advantage.  The Florida mortgage applicant can get the entire down payment as a gift.  They also allow  the seller pay up to 6% of the closing costs.  The mortgage conventional loans are not as flexible with their requirements.  You also don’t need to be a Florida first time home buyer to take advantage of a Florida FHA loan.  You can only have one FHA loan at a time (except under rare circumstances), and it needs to be a primary Florida home. I would not be surprised to see the FHA loans in Florida secure an even greater market share in the future.

When reviewing the FHA mortgage applicants  credit and credit report, the FHA mortgage lender must pay particular attention to the following:

The lender must determine the borrower’s payment history of housing obligations through either the credit report, verification of rent directly from the landlord (with no identity-of-interest with the borrower) or verification of mortgage directly from the mortgage servicer, or through canceled checks covering the most recent 12-month period. The FHA mortgage applicant must explain in writing all inquiries shown on the credit report in the last 90 days. The borrower must explain in writing all collections and judgments.  Extenuating circumstances include serious illness or death of a wage earner, but do not include the inability to sell the house because of a job transfer or relocation to another area.  Additionally, the FHA mortgage lender must document that the FHA mortgage applicants  current situation indicates that the events that led to the bankruptcy are not likely to recur.

 Past Chapter 13 bankruptcy does not disqualify a FHA mortgage applicant from obtaining an FHA-insured mortgage provided the FHA mortgage lender documents that one year of the payout period under the bankruptcy has elapsed and the borrower’s payment performance has been satisfactory (i.e., all required payments made on time).  In addition, the borrower must receive permission from the court to enter into the mortgage transaction.
