Mortgage Brokers in Fort WayneOur business partner and mortgage broker extraordinaire Laura Horacek with GSF Lending shared a great list of things NOT to do when buying a home with us last week.  She said that she recently had a borrow quit her job just days before closing and didn't realize it would be a problem because she found another job quickly.  


Clearly, it was a problem.  The deal did not close because of this.


Here are the Top 10 Things NOT To Do When Buying A Home:  


10.  I will NOT co-sign on any new credit for anybody else.  


 9.  I will NOT initiate any new inquiries into my credit.  


 8.  I will NOT close any of my bank accounts or change banks.  


 7.  I will NOT make any large deposits before checking with my Mortgage Lender. 


 6.  I will NOT establish any new items of credit within 60 days of my closing.  


 5.  I will NOT omit debts or liabilities for my mortgage application.  


 4.  I will NOT spend funds that have been set aside for closing.  


 3.  I will NOT use my existing credit cards excessivelly or fall behind on my payments.  


 2.  I will NOT purchase any large items on credit such as vehicles, appliances, or furtniture.  


 1.  I will NOT change jobs, become self-employed, or quit my job.  


These are all great words of advice from an experienced mortgage broker that we know and trust.

I almost made the mistake of buying a car over Fathers Day weekend. I don't need it and it would have changed my credit which could be good or bad...probably bad.

Thanks for the BLOG reminding us all to be smart.
