Helpful Hints During The Mortgage Loan Process

Follow these tips to build a solid foundation for successful financing:

  • Do not open or apply for any new Installment loan accounts of any type
  • Do not open or apply for any new credit cards
  • Do not exceed your existing credit card high balance limit
  • Do not increase existing credit lines
  • Do not close any of your existing unused credit cards
  • Any credit report inquiries made may result in a drop in your credit score. This would include cell phone, cable/satellite service, credit card of any type, car loan, bank overdraft protection, bank loan, etc. Do not apply for any type of credit during this mortgage process
  • Any inquiries made into your credit that are not shown on the original credit report must be explained in writing to prove that no new debt has been incurred
  • Credit card balances can, and will, affect your credit score. The amount owed on your credit card compared to the available balance is a determining factor of your credit score. Do not pay off your balance or add to your balance without consulting your loan officer first. A small change in the percentage owed may affect your score.
