FICO® Score 8 And FICO® Score, They Are Not The Same Thing

If you’ve ever gotten a FICO credit score, you might recall that FICO scores range from 300 to 850.Many people are aware that the FICO credit score is the trusted standard, but did you know there are different versions of the FICO score? Many creditors are now using the FICO® Score 8 model which in almost all cases increases the borrower’s credit score substantially. A challenge that many are now finding is understanding which creditor is using the model to where the borrower has the best score or are you correcting items on your credit that are omitted with the new FICO® Score 8 program.

How is FICO® Score 8 different from previous versions?

While the underlying foundation of FICO® Score 8 is consistent with previous versions, there are several unique features that make FICO® Score 8 a more predictive score:

High credit card usage

While all FICO® Score versions consider high credit card utilization to be reflective of higher risk, FICO® Score 8 is more sensitive to highly utilized credit cards. So if a credit report shows a high balance close to the card’s limit, FICO® Score 8 will likely be more impacted than a previous score version.

Keeping credit card balance low can help maintain or improve the score.

Isolated late payments

If a lender reports to the credit bureau that you were at least 30 days late with your payment, it will likely result in a loss of points with all FICO® Score versions. If the late payment is an isolated event and other accounts are in good standing, FICO® Score 8 is more forgiving compared with previous FICO® Score versions.

However, if the credit report shows numerous late payments, the reverse is true and FICO® Score 8 will likely lose more points.

Authorized user of credit card

All FICO® Score versions include authorized user credit card accounts when calculating a score. This can help people benefit from their shared management of a credit card account. It also helps lenders by providing scores that are based on a full snapshot of the consumer’s credit history.

To protect lenders and honest consumers, FICO® Score 8 substantially reduces any benefit of so-called tradeline renting. That’s a credit repair practice that entices consumers into being added to a stranger’s credit account in order to misrepresent their credit risk to lenders.

Small-balance collections accounts

FICO® Score 8 ignores small-dollar “nuisance” collection accounts in which the original balance was less than $100.

Forget Your Credit Score, It’s Your Debt!

Forget Your Credit Score, It’s Your Debt!

As a nation we obsess over credit scores. Once hidden in the computer terminals of banks, they’re now freely available to you via many providers on the Internet. But in reality, getting a loan takes into account much more than just your score. And nowhere is that more clear than when you try to get a mortgage or refinance an existing one. The process is usually murky, but a recent survey of loan officers by FICO sheds some light on what really matters. The survey asked what factor would make a loan officer most hesitant to approve a mortgage, and the number one answer took the lead by a wide margin:

  • High debt-to-income ratio 59%
  • Multiple recent applications 13%
  • Low FICO score 10%
  • Frequent job changes 9%
  • Lack of savings 8%

Debt to income is the biggest thing mortgage lenders look at, much more than your FICO score itself. Why is debt to income a bigger factor than your score? Nothing is more important than being able to afford a loan. What you pay every month toward your house and other obligations compared to what you earn is the most important factor. A FICO score only tells whether you are a reliable payer, not whether you can afford a house. The loan officer can look past a less than perfect FICO score if you’re buying a house you can truly afford. Being able to afford a house means keeping your debt to income below 36 percent when counting all of your monthly debt obligations, including credit cards, car loans, student loans, and your housing expenses. Officially, conforming loans can be had with debt to income ratios as high as 45 percent or so, but that’s cutting it close unless you have substantial savings or bonuses that don’t get counted in the income calculation. But really, you shouldn’t be going any higher than approximately 35 percent. Think about it this way. If you’re pulling in $5,000 a month before taxes, a 45 percent debt to income ratio leaves you just $500 in cash a month for the rest of your life expenses after you get taxes taken out. Yes, you get a tax benefit at the end of the year for deducting interest, but the reality is you’re house poor, even with a perfect credit score. At 35 percent you’ll have $1,500 a month in cash for your life. The difference between 35 percent and 45 percent doesn’t sound like much on paper, but in cash for you it’s almost 3 times more a month. Do this math at least three times before deciding how much of a mortgage you can really afford. Just because you qualify doesn’t mean you will want to live with it. Will a better score help at all? Your credit score can help some, but don’t expect a lot of relief. Here is a national sample of mortgage rates by FICO score at the time of this article collected by Informa Research Services on behalf of FICO:

  • 760- 850: 3.785% $1,860 / month
  • 700-759: 4.007% $1,911 / month
  • 680-699: 4.184% $1,952 / month
  • 660-679: 4.398% $2,003 / month
  • 640-659: 4.828% $2,105 / month
  • 620-639: 5.374% $2,240 / month

The difference between a marginal excellent credit score (700-759) and a truly excellent one (760+) is about $50 a month on a $400,000 mortgage. That’s $600 a year, and $18,000 over the life of the mortgage. The key here: Be careful about what other credit you apply for before you apply for a mortgage. Loan officers don’t want to see a lot of recent credit applications, and each one can temporarily ding your score five or 10 points. So if you’re on the borderline of 760, 700, or 680, it’s best to avoid opening any new credit accounts for about 6 months before a mortgage. Otherwise a couple of cards could end up costing you $18,000 in extra payments on your mortgage. And if you have a borderline score, pay as much debt off as you can before applying. It will help your debt to income ratio, and improve your score. Just make sure you do it at least a month before applying, as banks typically report data to the credit bureaus only once a month. Bottom line: you don’t need a perfect FICO to qualify for a mortgage, or even get a fair rate. But you do need to be looking for a home you can truly afford based on your income. While you may qualify for a bigger, better house than you thought, it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to afford your current lifestyle with that bigger payment.

Tips for a Successful Home Mortgage Loan Closing

Tips for a Successful Home Mortgage Loan Closing

Tips for a Successful Home Mortgage Loan Closing

“Can you close on time”?
Over the years most borrowers and/or their Real Estate Agents ask us at Mortgage Tree Capital the common question “can you close on time”? Not closing timely for borrowers can be a costly blunder; it can cause the borrowers to lose their good faith deposit, increase costs associated with your move or interest rate, and cause your mortgage loan to permanently stall and never get funded.

The Application Process
The information you provide on your mortgage application will be verified by your loan officer, your underwriter, and by a 3rd party verification service as part of the approval process. The same information will be re-verified before funds are released to make your home purchase or complete your refinance. We have developed a list which understanding your part of the closing process and being prepared are very important factors in making your closing go effortlessly.

Refinances and Purchases
• Don’t apply for or acquire any additional debt until after your loan has closed.
• Don’t Increase balances on credit cards and/or equity lines of credit.
• Don’t close any accounts without instruction from your loan officer
• Don’t open new installment loans of any kind.
• Don’t co-sign any type of credit on behalf of another individual.
• Don’t start any new real estate loans.
• Don’t make any large deposits into your bank account(s).
• Don’t deposit gift funds into your bank account(s).
• Don’t change jobs or take a leave of absence for any reason.
• Don’t reject (if requested) the option to receive disclosers by email to instead receive them by postal mail. Postal mail requires an additional 10-15 day waiting period(s) thus stalling your mortgage loan 10-15 additional days.

Undisclosed Debt Monitoring
Many mortgage borrowers, including those with high credit scores and low debt-to-income ratios, apply for at least one new trade line during the “quiet period” which is the time frame from when we approve you till the time your mortgage loan is funded. At the same time, these borrowers are unaware of how this new “undisclosed debt” impacts their ability to qualify for their mortgage. We have a system in place called UDM (Undisclosed Debt Monitoring) which alerts us instantly when your credit is pulled and this alert will automatically stall your mortgage loan and affect your loan approval.

Purchases
As temping as it may be the buyer, the seller, or their agents should never negotiate short (under 30 days) closing periods on FHA, VA, USDA, and down-payment assistance programs as these can take up to 40-45 days.
• Fixers cannot be purchased with less than 20% down.

Adhering to the above will ensure a smooth and successful closing

What is PMI? How does PMI work?

What Is PMI?

What is PMI? How does PMI work?

Private mortgage insurance (PMI) protects the lender if you stop making payments on your loan. Lenders may require you to purchase PMI if your down payment is less than 20 percent of the sales price or the appraised value of the home. PMI premiums are added to your monthly mortgage payment. You may be able to cancel private mortgage insurance after a few years based on certain criteria, such as paying down your loan balance to a certain amount.

TIP: If you are making a down payment of less than 20 percent, be sure you know if PMI is required and how much the PMI will add to your monthly payments. Not making on-time payments may delay when you can cancel your PMI. Before you commit to paying for mortgage insurance, find out the specific requirements for cancellation.

TIP: Don’t confuse PMI with mortgage life insurance, which is designed to pay off a mortgage in the event of a borrower’s death or disability.

6 Reasons To Avoid Private Mortgage Insurance

If you’re thinking of buying a home, remember you’re going to need to save up enough money for a 20% down payment. If you can’t, it’s a safe bet that your lender will force you to secure private mortgage insurance (PMI) prior to signing off on the loan. The purpose of the insurance is to protect the mortgage company if you default on the note.

Private mortgage insurance sounds like a great way to buy a house without having to save up the cash for a down payment. Sometimes it is the only, or even the best, option for new homebuyers. However, there are several reasons would-be homeowners should try to avoid paying this insurance. In this article, we’ll examine the six common problems with PMI and then explore a possible solution that allows homebuyers to avoid it altogether.

Six Good Reasons to Avoid PMI
1.Cost – Private mortgage insurance typically costs between 0.5% to 1% of the entire loan amount on an annual basis. On a $100,000 loan this means the homeowner could be paying as much as $1,000 a year, or $83.33 per month – assuming a 1% PMI fee. (Calculated as: $100,000 x 1% = $1,000 / 12 = $83.33) By itself that’s a pretty hefty sum. However, the average home price, according to the National Association of Realtors is about $230,000, which means families could be spending nearly $200 a month on the insurance. That’s as much as a car payment!
2.May Not Be Deductible – Private mortgage insurance contracts are tax deductible – that is, if the married taxpayer earns less than $110,000 per year (in adjusted gross income). For married couples filing separately, that threshold is $55,000. This means many dual-income families with a combined income just above the threshold will be left out in the cold. While there are rumors this “income cap” could be raised in the future, there is no guarantee it will happen. Many homeowners (particularly those just above the threshold) may be better off making a larger down payment where at least they’ll have the peace of mind that the interest on the loan is be deductible. For more on this important deduction, read The Mortgage Interest Tax Deduction.
3.Your Heirs Get Nothing – Most homeowners hear the word “insurance” and assume that their spouse or their kids will receive some sort of monetary compensation if they die. This is simply not true. The lending institution is the sole beneficiary of any such policy, and the proceeds are paid directly to lender (not indirectly to the heirs first). If you want to protect your heirs and provide them with money for living expenses upon your death, you’ll need to obtain a separate insurance policy. Don’t be fooled into thinking PMI will help anyone but your mortgage lender.
4.Giving Money Away – Homebuyers who put down less than 20% of the sale price will have to pay mortgage insurance until the total equity of the home reaches 20%. This could take years, and it amounts to a lot of money the homeowner is literally giving away. To put the cost into better perspective, if a couple who own a $250,000 home were to instead take the $208 per month they were spending on PMI and invest it in a mutual fund that earned an 8% annual compounded rate of return, that money would grow to $37,707 (assuming no taxes were taken out) within 10 years.
5.Hard To Cancel – As mentioned above, usually when a homeowner’s equity tops 20%, he or she no longer has to pay PMI. However, eliminating the monthly burden isn’t as easy as just not sending in the payment. Many lenders require the homeowner to draft a letter requesting that the PMI be canceled, as well as receive a formal appraisal of the home prior to its cancellation. All in all, this could take several months depending upon the lender.
6.Payment Goes On and On – One final issue that deserves mentioning is that some lenders require the homeowner to maintain a PMI contract for a designated period of time. So, even if the homeowner has met the 20% threshold, he or she may still be obligated to keep paying for the mortgage insurance. Check with your lender and read the fine print of a PMI contract for more specifics.

It’s Not All Bad For many Americans PMI is deductible.Those families who itemize their deductions and earn less than $110,000 per year, will find that their PMI is deductible. For a couple with a $250,000 loan and a $2,500 annual PMI payment (1% of the outstanding loan), this deduction could translate into savings of $300 to $400 dollars or more (depending upon the couple’s tax bracket).
