We thought our deal was dead in the water until you threw us a life raft
A couple was making a move across the country and planned to use an FHA loan to purchase a new home. They wanted to leave the husband off the mortgage due to his low credit score and commission-based income, which would be difficult to verify. Still, because it was a community property state, we were required to measure his debts against his wife’s income, which ended up putting her over the ratio limit and threatened to disqualify her for the loan. Thankfully, due to the quick thinking of our team, we found a solution. We lowered the couple’s down payment from 12% to the FHA minimum of 3.5%, freeing up a considerable amount of cash that they then used to pay off their car loan. This not only bettered their debt-to-income ratio, but lowered their monthly expenses. We got the deal closed and the couple is now enjoying life in their new home and community.
We were crushed when we were denied by our previous lender and lost our deposit and the house. But you came through for us on our second try!
Referred to us by their close friends, our recent borrowers were upset about being denied by their previous lender two weeks before closing – costing them the house and their deposit. When we met, we learned that the other lender denied the couple for a VA loan due to eligibility requirements and a short employment history. What the lender didn’t seem to know was that there had been recent changes in eligibility limits, which allowed them to qualify. In addition, though the husband had retired from his job of 20 years, he had recently taken a new position with nearly all the same responsibilities. So his time with his new employer was short, but he showed a long history of employment in the same type of work. Overcoming that last hurdle, the couple moved forward with making an offer on a home they liked even more than the first one, and we closed their loan without a hitch.
We couldn’t have purchased our new home without the sale of our old one. Luckily, we had you to help make it happen.
After we met at an event a year earlier, a couple came to us ready to accept an offer on their current home and get into contract on a larger one. But, two weeks before the closings, we learned that the buyers of their current home had their financing denied by another lender due to insufficient income. Our clients needed the sale to be able to afford their new home and were heartbroken that they would likely lose out. In an effort to get both families the homes they loved, we stepped in and offered our services to the buyers. Once we took a look at their file, we found income that had gone unreported in their 2017 tax returns. With an extra $5k to report, we were able to approve their loan and move forward with both purchases. Thankful that we could save the deals in time, both families are now happily living in their new homes.
When another lender denied our loan because of our complicated income, you ensured we still got our home on time
With their first baby on the way, a couple needed more space and found their dream home close to family. They entered into contract with a different lender, only to be denied on the day the loan contingency was to be removed. Their Realtor knew we could close loans fast and called us right away. The clients had complicated 1099 and commission-based income, so we needed to review it quickly and thoroughly. We found that one had earned a large commission late the previous year that didn’t get paid out until early 2018, which threw off the 2017 income being used to help them qualify. To overcome this, we added the couple’s parents as co-borrowers, which strengthened their application and made it easier to qualify them for the purchase. Despite being brought in late in the deal, we closed in 15 days and both our clients and the sellers were thrilled with the speedy solution.
We were declined by our lender the day before contingencies were removed, but your team stepped in and got our loan done in just 14 days!
Clients were already in contract when their lender’s denial threatened the deal. Their income was complicated – one was a Veteran, both were doctors and they were getting a second loan from their employer to help with the down payment. The sellers already had a back-up offer, so there was no wiggle room to postpone the closing date. We quickly jumped in and discovered that the previous lender had miscalculated our clients’ income. We made the correction, got them approved and funded their loan within two weeks – closing on the original date scheduled. They were so happy, they even invited us to their house warming party.
Leaving my struggles behind for a more serene life, you helped me start my next chapter.
A newly single mother had come to us for help. She was just re-entering the workforce after taking years off to raise her children, address health issues and deal with her previous home that had burned down. She had now fallen in love with a home on the lake, but learned she was facing potential title issues due to legal road access to the property. Her Realtor had encouraged her to use a local bank that was familiar with the issue and could help, but its high interest rates left her wanting a second opinion. Her lack of recent work history was a challenge, which we addressed with verifications of employment from her former companies. Then, together with her lawyer, we arranged for title insurance to address any potential issues about road access. We were also able to secure a rate much lower than she was offered by the bank. And to top it off, we closed two weeks early. She is now watching the sun rise over the lake every morning and ready to take on the next chapter of her life.
