How can I view my credit report? An important key point a loan consultant considers when helping you decide which lender/program is best for you is to view your credit. For most mortgage companies, you will need a 3 RMCR (Residential Mortgage Credit Report). This report generally costs $60-$70 depending on the lender you choose. The purpose of this report is to pull your credit history from each of the three major credit-reporting agencies–Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union. The mortgage company does not make any money on this transaction. Your lender is required to use outside companies to acquire your credit report, as they are impartial to the findings on your credit report. Your account balances and account history on your report are verified. You will be provided with a “credit score”. If you have a credit score of 620+, you most likely will have more options to consider with your loan.
Many lenders will use a one-bureau credit report for the initial consultation regarding your loan interest. The one bureau credit report generally costs the lender $7-$15. The lender will absorb this expense in attempt to gain your business with their mortgage company. This report pulls your credit from one of the three major credit bureaus to give the lender a “snap-shot” look at your credit history. We highly recommend that you view your credit report before you chat with a loan officer to ensure the validity of the information they present to you. Need A Credit Report?
