RHONDA SHERMAN – Home Loans In Colorado

Whether You Are A First Time Home Buyer, Veteran,
Investor or Want to Refinance,  Here Are Some 

Practical Steps to Home Financing –


     First of all, despite what you may have heard, you don’t need a 20% down   payment. Instead you will need to pay some type of mortgage insurance or funding fee.


There are still two programs that are 100% financing for home loans:

     1. The VA loan for veterans and reservists.

     2. The Rural Housing Program, for properties outside urban areas. In Mesa County that would be places such as Fruita, Palisade, Whitewater, DeBeque and Collbran, Colorado. FHA (Federal Housing Authority) loans require 3.50% down payment and Conventional Loans require 5% down payment.

  • CREDIT SCORES

Most home loans require a credit score of at least 620. However, the higher the credit score the better deal you will get on the interest rate. A 740 credit score or above is the best. So before going to a lender, get a copy of your free credit report at Annual Credit Report.  Dispute anything that is incorrect with the 3 major credit repositories. If you don’t have a credit score, get a credit card from somewhere like Orchard Bank, which can be backed by your own money. Borrow a small amount and pay back every month on time until you establish good credit.

  • PROOF OF INCOME

You do need to prove your income, which is a requirement in the State of Colorado. If you are employed, then your most recent 30 day paystub plus last years W-2 will be needed.  If you are self employed, the last 2 years of your federal income tax will be required.

  • CONTRACT ON A HOUSE

Before putting a contract on a house, you will need to be pre-qualified for a mortgage. I would recommend getting referrals from family and friends.

  • MORTGAGE BROKERS

In order to get a license in the State of Colorado, all Mortgage Brokers must pass a background check, credit check and take a annual mortgage loan test before they can be licensed.  Mortgage Brokers are also required to be bonded and take updated educational classes each year on home financing.
Mortgage Brokers usually have several lenders they can shop your loan to, and as a big advantage aren’t locked into the policies of one lender.  You should look at 3 lenders at the very minimum. You need to get at least one Good Faith Estimate of closing costs from each of those lenders.  Then at this point, you will need to decide if you should go for the lowest interest rate or the lowest closing costs or something in between.

Once you have a contract on the house, then you will need to make application for the loan.  You will need to get all documentation your lender and underwriter asks for.  You should then get an approval from the lender and a cleared to close.  This process generally takes about 30 days.

Next step, enjoy your new home.

  2. I simply wished to appreciate you once more. I am not sure the things that I would have accomplished without the type of advice revealed by you directly on such a industry. It actually was the intimidating situation in my opinion, but viewing your specialized strategy you processed it forced me to jump with delight. Now i’m grateful for this help and hope you are aware of a great job you happen to be putting in instructing many people through the use of a web site. I am certain you have never got to know all of us.

  3. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

  4. This blog is greatest!

  5. Thanks for your post. I would like to comment that the very first thing you will need to carry out is find out if you really need credit score improvement. To do that you have got to get your hands on a replica of your credit report. That should really not be difficult, considering that the government mandates that you are allowed to obtain one free of charge copy of your real credit report each year. You just have to check with the right individuals. You can either find out from the website owned by the Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the main credit agencies right away.
