Getting a home loan pre approval is the first important step to take before starting on your property hunting journey. However, it is important to ensure that you are likely to qualify for the home loan you are applying for, before putting your application in.
What Is Credit Scoring
Lenders will assess information about you before deciding to give you a home loan. As well as looking at your income, expenses, conduct on other loans, and the size of your deposit, they will also conduct a credit scoring on your overall situation.
Not every lender relies on credit scoring, but in many instances, if you have less than a 20% deposit, then this will most likely be factored in.
The surprising thing for many consumers is, that credit scoring can be affected by a number of things that you would not think of. This includes how many times you have applied for loans or credit in the past, particularly in recent months, or in the prior 12 months to your current application.
I want to apply for a home loan – what should I do?
It is important to have your situation reviewed up front by an experienced broker. At Bee Finance Savvy, we will go over all of your details including income, expenses, and when needed, conduct on your other loans and accounts. We can advise you if anything looks unfavourable, and help you with steps to remedy this.
It is also important to let us know if you have placed other loan applications or applications for credit in recent times. As your credit score can be affected by the number of applications you have made, the type of applications and how far apart they are. Then we are better able to match you with a lender whom will suit your needs, depending on your overall situation, and the type of loan you are now seeking.
We keep up to date on our 30 plus lenders’ policies. This means that we are familiar with their rules regarding how they will assess your application, and whether there is anything that needs further explanation on your behalf to ensure a positive outcome. We can provide you with an obligation free consultation, without marking your credit file.
