Several factors go into your loan pre-approval including credit, income, employment, and down payment. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:
- Credit. Having a developed credit profile with multiple credit accounts with at least two years of credit history helps lenders evaluate your risk as a borrower. Your credit score will also influence the rate and amount of the mortgage loan offered.
- Income and employment. Lenders need to know that you can afford to pay back the loan, so proof of income is required. A longer work history can also indicate that your employment is stable and less likely to decline.
- Down payment. For borrowers purchasing real estate, having a down payment can show the lender that you’re invested in the property and in paying back what you borrow.
OUCU provides personalized mortgage solutions. Your mortgage originator will work with you during the pre-approval process to review your full financial situation and discuss your options.
