Consumer Financing Needs

home contractor
What's Need to Qualify for Financing
Lenders use several criteria to qualify an applicant for home or financing financing. The most important criteria include:
1) the home/or auto appraisal:
the appraisal is the value of the asset (home or auto) that is being financed. You can borrow up to the appraised value of the home or auto.
Get your home valuation report
2) your credit rating:
your credit report is used by banks and other lending institutions to determine your credit worthiness. The report can be a factor in a lending institution's decision to approve or decline your application. You should review your credit report for any errors before applying for a loan.
View your credit report
Get your FICO score
3) your capacity to repay (income ratios):
lenders analyze two ratios when qualifying the applicant for financing - the "housing ratio" and the "debt-to-income" ratio. If these ratios are too high, you may not qualify for financing.
Calculate your income and debt ratios
Calculate how much you can afford
4) your employment:
lenders like to see applicants in good, steady employment. Lenders will verify your income with your employer or your filed tax statements.
Look for new employment if necessary
