Your Questions About Mortgage Loan Type

Sandy asks…

Can I use mortgage loan for new car?

My husband and I are in the process of buying our first home, we also have a car that we would like to trade in for something newer. Is it illegal to bump our mortgage loan up by $10,000- $15,000 and use it to buy a pre-owned car? The car would be payed off at the dealership with the loan, so it would be ‘payed off’ immediently, as in, we will only have a few extra dollars a month added to our mortgage. I see it as consolidating car loan and mortgage– is this a good idea?
Uhhh- I’m not asking about what kind of a loan I should get.

Charles asks…

Can I Get a Home Loan?

I am thinking of buying a house or condo. I have pretty good credit as well as a VA loan for my service in the military but I don’t have a down-payment. Is it possible to secure a home loan without a down-payment?

John answers:

With your VA loan eligibility you qualify for a mortgage loan without a down payment. This is your right as a veteran. Just tell your mortgage banker/broker that you want to be qualified for a VA mortgage.

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

Helen asks…

Should I get a biz loan or mortgage loan first!!!?

I am looking into buying a business and also shopping around for a new home. I was wondering if it was a good idea to purchase a home or a business first. The biz loan will be about $130,000 and looking for a mortgage no more than about $250,000. Does anyone have any advice on what will be better to do first.

William asks…

mortgage loan?

is it possible to get mortgage loan with collections on your credit report
17 in all 8 paid in full , 3 reported more than once by different collection agencys which i disputed on/in 1-07. the other 9 are medical bills from 2 from 2002 2 from 2003 5 from 2004 should i ignore let them fall off or should i settle

John answers:

Yes it is. In fact, it is common these days. It will all depend on what type of loan you are going for, and what type of collections you have. If you owe 200 bucks to a phone company from a year or two ago, it isn’t as big of a deal to the lenders as owing 5,000 in back child support…. They do whatever makes sense…

Comment back on what type, how old, and total number of collection accounts, as well as a total dollar amount and I will tell you how your chances look…
