A Fresh Start for Credit Challenged Borrowers

As of late I have been getting requests from borrowers that have experienced either a bankruptcy, foreclosure or short sale.   There really haven’t been great options…… Until now!
This new program is called Fresh Start.   The Fresh Start product is just that – it’s designed to help borrowers buy or refinance a home after a bankruptcy or foreclosure, but have since rebuilt their credit.

Here a few bullet points this product offers:

  • Loan amounts up to $1M
  • Minimum credit score 580
  • 100% gift for down
  • Higher Debt to Income Ratios
  • No seasoning requirement for BK, foreclosure, short sale
  • Purchase or rate & term
  • cash-out refinance with a max cash back of $350,000
  • No pre-payment penalties

Please call me or fill out your information under my Resources tab, and we can discuss your loan scenarios to learn more about this program and others designed to fit your needs.

New Help for Challenged Borrowers

I’m constantly on the lookout for new lending trends to better serve my clients. Recently available are two new loan programs designed to help more buyers, including those who have been turned down by other lenders. If you or someone you know is recovering from a recent foreclosure, bankruptcy, or a history of late mortgage payments, it is easier than ever to get financing. Homeowner’s Access is a loan product that may qualify borrowers with a history of 30- or 60-day late loan payments. Other features include a minimum 610 FICO score, only 2 years seasoning for bankruptcies, foreclosures and short sales. The other loan program is Fresh Start. This allows a minimum 580 FICO scoring and eliminates seasoning requirements for bankruptcies, foreclosures, and short sales. Best of all, both Homeowner’s Access and Fresh Start allow my clients to receive 100% gift funds from family members. Now, more than ever, I am able qualify more challenged borrowers for home ownership.
