Do’s and Don’t’s of the Loan Process

Have questions about acquiring a loan to purchase a home?  Summit Funding has a multitude of information to help you out!

Here are some basic Dos and Don’ts to get you thinking about the next step:

Do
Stay Current on Existing Accounts – One 30 day notice can cost you.
Continue to Use Your Credit as Normal – Changing your pattern will raise a red flag and lower your credit score.
Call Your Mortgage Professional Before Making Any Address or Credit Changes
Don’t
Apply for New Credit – Every time you have your credit pulled by a potential creditor or lender, you can lose points from your credit score. This includes co-signing for a loan.Close Credit Card Accounts – If you close a credit card account, it may appear that your debt ratio has gone up. Closing a card will affect other factors in the score, including credit history.

Max Out Credit Cards – Try to keep your credit balances 30% below their limit during the loan process. If you pay down balances, do it across the board.

Pay Off Collections or “Charge-Offs” – If you want to pay off old accounts, do it through escrow. Request a “letter of deletion” from the creditor.

Consolidate Your Debt – When you consolidate all of your debt onto one or two credit cards, it will appear that you are “maxed out” on that card and you will be penalized.

Celebrate Your Wins in 2015!

The Strange Team of Keller Williams Preferred Realty celebrates being the #1 team in 2014 by hitting the race tracks….

When we sat down as a real estate team to go over our game plan for 2015 we agreed that one thing we didn’t do enough of in 2014 was acknowledging wins.  This is the year we’re making a conscious effort to celebrate our successes and we want to encourage you to do the same thing.  Here are some quick ideas to help make it easier to celebrate:

  • Buy small serving bottles of sparkling cider and pretend you’re opening a bottle of champagne
  • Buy gift cards from Costco and use them when the moment presents itself
  • Plan a family movie night for the next blockbuster Marvel movie (use the Costco gift cards to save some money)
  • Get a mani/pedi (girls can go get one too 😉 )
  • Have a family picnic dinner
  • Download a new favorite album
  • Take a day trip to the mountains
  • Stay overnight in a Colorado B&B
  • Get a massage
  • Tell someone who supports you
  • Drop us a line and tell us how you celebrate your successes.

 

Earlier this month we took a few hours to hit the race track and have some fun.  What were we celebrating?  The Strange Team finished 2014 as the #1 team in production and volume and ranked #7 in the state of Colorado.  We couldn’t have done it without you and we want to express our total and complete appreciation.

 

Happy 2015!
