Moses Lake, Wa 1st Time Home Buyer Information, part 2
If you are like the average Moses Lake, Wa 1st time home buyer, you either don't have a clue what your credit looks like, or you know it is bad, just not how bad. You nay be one of those who knows what their score is, know it is great and feel confident you will qualify to purchase a home. If that is the case..........CONGRATULATIONS! You are a giant step ahead of the game and you can probably skip this step.
So now for the rest of us average Joe's. The first thing to remember is, if you have made mistakes in the past, they are in the past. You still have to deal with the consequences of them, but today is a new day. No "If I would haves" allowed here.
If you have not made mistakes that have affected your credit, you may have done nothing at all. No credit cards, no car loans, etc.. If that is the case you have no credit. No credit is not a bad thing, but it is not a good thing either. Lenders want to know your history of payments. They want to know they can trust you with their money.
Now what? You either have no credit or not so great credit. I am not a credit expert, my expertise is in real estate. If you are not a Moses Lake, Wa 1st time home buyer you can call your local job source service and ask if there is someone who can help you find out about your credit. Be sure and ask if they are non-profit! If they are, they have no ulterior motive and they can look up your scores on all three of the top reporting agencies without it showing a negative on your reports. Ask that person to explain to you why that is important.
If you are a Moses Lake, Wa 1st time home buyer, I highly recommend calling Carolyn Grant at the Prosperity Center which is located in the Work Source building on 5th. Her number is 509-766-4152.

She will not only help you with how to proceed on your credit, she will also explain to you all sorts of fun things such as what your debt to income ratio should be. Once you have met with her, call your Realtor (hopefully me:)) and together you/we can decide what your next step should be.
