How Your Credit Score Affects Your Mortgage:

Understanding Your Credit Score

Your credit score is a three digit number which essentially grades your credit history. There are three main credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. These bureaus keep track of your credit when lenders report to them. Not all lenders report all information to all three credit bureaus, so you may have different reports and scores for all three. The score can also look different based on who requests the report or score. An individual requesting their own credit score will look different than a report generated for a lending professional.

The FICO Score is the most common scoring system which includes both a number score and a rating from Exceptional to Poor. Most mortgage lenders are looking for a rating of at least Good (670 or above). However there are several options for people with scores under 670.

Mortgage Options for Below Average Credit Scores

Stampfli Mortgage has access to a number of lenders who have programs for imperfect credit.

Wisconsin FHA mortgages are insured by the federal government. Most programs allow a credit score of 620, some may even go as low as 580.

Wisconsin USDA mortgages are also insured by the federal government. This program also allows for credit scores as low as 620.

Wisconsin VA mortgages are available for qualified veterans and active service members. The VA allows for credit scores at or below 620 as well.

Non-qualifying mortgages are another option offered through Stampfli Mortgage. These mortgages are not required to follow guidelines. These are considered "in-house" lender programs and the lender has complete control over the approval of the loan.

What to do if you Still Don't Qualify

Your mortgage advisor at Stampfli Mortgage will carefully review your credit report. The report will be analysed for errors, discrepencies, quick fixes and long-term improvement options. Some errors or small problems can be fixed in a matter of weeks. Even if it takes a little longer, your mortgage advisor will give you the guidance you need to get you on track.
