WHY WHY WHY Can't my buyers get a loan now???

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker, Beachside 01843333

I have 3 sets of buyers.

ALL are employed.

All have 30% downpayment with additional cash reserves to cover mortgage costs for over a year.

ALL have Fico scores over 740.


ALL have had a shortsale less than 4 years ago.


Now, a year ago they were told they needed to wait 3 years before they can purchase again. Now, it's been moved up tp 4 years.


Why are they being punished?

Why can't people get a loan, if they can qualify for one?


What is the point of making them wait?


I would think it would be better for the entire nation, for the real estate market, and for the economy as a whole to allow people who are thusly qualifed to purchase a home.



Home buying creates revenue for the entire counrty. More building, more construction, more landscapers, furniture and decorating sales. I just don't get it.

I have many move up sellers too. They have short sold other homes. They would like to sell and buy something larger for their growing family, but know they can't get a new loan.

This is stupid folks!!!!

Sher, that is why our favorite lender is a mortgage broker who can get competitive investor loans for buyers, unlike many banks and FHA,  that can work around foreclosures and short sales from a couple of years ago as long as they have the credit score and stable employment background.

Are they really being punished?

I know that one of my clients was turned down recently with about the same scenerio as yours because they willingly walked away from their home and not because of a hardship.

They probably can get a loan. It's just a question of finding the right program and lender to fit their needs.
