Can you get a mortgage loan while in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:

Here is a brief summary on getting a mortgage loan while in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:
 
You must have 12 payments paid into the Chapter 13 before you can apply for a mortgage loan.
 
The payments must be made on time for last 12 months or after 12 months if you have been in longer, so no late payments to the Chapter 13 while in it. 
 
You have to ask permission from the courts to seek a mortgage loan. They usually grants this. I have never not seen them grant it.
 
You have to qualify with the new house payment along with Chapter 13 payments and other debts listed on credit report. Debt to income ratios usually center around 31 and 43% respectively, meaning the new house payment should not be more than 31% of your gross monthly income and your total house payment and debts listed on credit report along with Chapter 13 payment should not be more than 43% of your total gross monthly income. 
 
Credit scores: Most FHA lenders I work with will want a 620 middle score. You have three fico scores from Experian, Equifax, and Transunion, and they throw out the high and low score and take middle score. For example, if you had a 598, 679, and 590 scores respectively for all three bureaus listed above, your qualifying score would be 598.
There are some FHA investors that I am set up with that will go down to 580, but I have seen in my past experiences 620 will get you a better deal and far greater chance of closing on your loan with FHA. 
 
Down payment: For FHA loans, you will need to have at least 3.5% down payment saved up. It is extremely hard to find a no money down loan program to get you approved for a mortgage while you are in a Chapter 13 plan. 
 
FHA and USDA are really the only two options that I know of that offer financing for a borrower with a current Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan plan, so keep that in mind. 
 
Conventional loan program offered by Fannie Mae will not allow a mortgage loan for someone in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan.
 
On USDA loans, it is possible to get 100% Financing after you have paid into the plan for 12 months with a good pay history. The credit scores needed for a USDA loan approval really need to be above 640 in my past experience in getting them approved. A lot of USDA lenders will say they will do down to 620, but it is very difficult getting them approved. Best to get your scores up to increase your changes in qualifying for a USDA loan. There is not much that difference in getting your scores up to that range if you are at a 620 score now. 
 
With USDA loans, they have income and property eligibility requirements that FHA does not have, so below is a rough run down of FHA vs USDA loan for you:
 
Typically, USDA-eligible properties are located in rural areas. It is a mistake, however, to think that you have to live far out in the country to qualify for a USDA loan. USDA-eligible properties are often located near urban areas.

A property’s eligibility is determined by its location with respect to USDA’s map of eligible locations. The USDA program also places limits on your household income based on median earnings in an area. If you exceed that limit, you can’t obtain a USDA loan.

The FHA, by contrast, does not place limits on household earnings. The FHA, however, does establish a maximum limit on the amount of money that can be borrowed through the program.

So if you were in a hurry to buy, after you have been in your Chapter 13 plan for 12 months, I can look at getting you approved to buy a home if you wish:
 
In order to get you pre-approved for your max loan amount, I will need the following items from you. This is a free process and I will give you a copy of your credit report for free!
 
 
Mortgage Pre-Approval Checklist
 
1.  Last 30 days worth of pay stubs
2.  Last 2 years W-2′s
3.  Last 2 years tax returns
4.  Last two months bank statements for all accounts including 401 k or retirement account  if you have one
 
____________________________________________
 
 
Once I get the information above, I can usually get you pre-approved in one day, and get your loan closed in 30-45 days after you get an accepted offer on a home. 
 
Your first house payment usually starts 30-60 days after you close.
 
Your loan pre-approval is usually good for 90 days.
 
I don’t need originals, copies are fine. You can fax or email  me the above documents,  or meet me face-to-face if you wish to make copies and go over your options.
 
Let me know your questions. 
 
Thanks and look forward to helping you.

Mortgage interest rates are low now and whether you are a buyer or a seller, this is good news!

If you are a buyer:

You will spend thousands less over the life of your home mortgage on a home purchased now versus a time of higher interest rates. If you are shopping for a home and have a down payment ready to go, this is an ideal time to act. Look at one of the online amortization calculators to see how much interest you will save over the life of your mortgage, then talk to a mortgage banker and a real estate agent to take advantage of these historically low interest rates.

If you are a seller:

Your home is more affordable now. You can ask a fair price for your home and buyers will save on the interest rates, making your home a better deal for them. If you…

Kentucky Rural Housing USDA Credit and Income Guidelines for 2018

26733396_1566820890066460_2847847335188379653_nKentucky Rural Housing USDA Credit and Income Guidelines for 2018

  Kentucky Rural Housing USDA Credit and Income Guidelines for 2018

  • No Down Payment required, 100% financing available
  • 30 year fixed rate only no other terms allowed.
  • Not limited to First Time Home buyers! Also available for the move up home buyer.
  • More affordable than FHA when compared to mortgage insurance
  • Seller concession fees at 6%
  • No Bankruptcies last 3 years or foreclosures last 3 years
  • Typical max income household income limits are centered on how many people are going to live in the home and which county you are going to buy a home in. Most Counties in Kentucky are maxed at $80k for a household of four or less, and up to $103k for a household of five or more.
  • Debt to income ratios are usually centered around 45% on the backend ratio, meaning the new house payment plus the monthly bills on the credit report cannot be more than 45% of our total grossqualifying income.
  • There is also a front end ratio, which is the new house payment only divided by the gross monthly income. This can vary anywhere between 20% to 35% I have seen on some borrowers depending on your credit scores and assets.
  • If you have access to 20% down payment, you cannot use the USDA loan program.
  • Only new manufactured homes are allowed for USDA loans and the dealer must be approved contractor with USDA
  • Swimming pools are okay for USDA loans on appraisals.
  • Working farms are not allowed with USDA loan, but there is no acreage limits on
  • USDA loans.
 Kentucky Rural Housing USDA Program 

  • Guarantee Fee applies. May be financed and added to the loan amount
  • Flexible credit guidelines and 620 FICO***Even though USDA states in the guidelines that they will go down to a 580, most lenders will not go below 620 that I work with.
  • Manual underwrites, meaning if you get a refer through the Automated system their is chance you can still get approved.
  • Ratios per GUS Approval–GUS stands for their Automated Underwriting System which lenders use to get borrowers pre-approved. It will review credit, income, and assets along with area, purchase prince amount and determine your loan pre-approval
  • Flipped properties within 90 days of seller acquisition are allowed
  • Household income may not exceed 115% of the area’s median income level*
  • Transferred appraisals are okay, so FHA will work for USDA appraisals.

A settlement administrator on the case will contact Kentuckians eligible for payments.

The settlement requires PHH to adhere to comprehensive mortgage servicing standards, conduct audits and provide audit results to a committee of states.

The settlement does not release PHH from liability for conduct that occurred beginning in 2013.
