In this blog, we will cover rapid rescore to qualify for mortgages.
Importance Of Credit Scores
Consumer credit scores are one of the most important factors when qualifying for a mortgage. Lenders have minimum credit score requirements. To qualify for a 3.5% down payment FHA loans, borrowers will need to meet at least a 580 credit score requirement. Borrowers with under 580 credit scores need a 10% down payment to qualify for FHA Loans. If a home buyer with a 560 credit score does not have a 10% down payment but has a 3.5% down payment, they will not qualify for an FHA Loan unless they can raise their credit scores 20 points to 580. This is when rapid rescore by lenders can help.
Using Rapid Rescore To Expedite Updating Credit Information On Credit Bureaus
Most experienced loan officers have a FICO Simulator which is a credit score simulator system. Loan officers will upload consumer credit reports to the simulator and the system will give an analysis of what the borrower needs to do for a credit score improvement. The FICO Simulator will state how much to pay down on a credit card account in order to get potential credit score improvement. Once the borrower gets confirmation that he or she paid down credit card accounts, the loan officer will contact the credit bureaus through a third-party credit agency and do a rapid rescore. This process often takes 3 to 5 business days.
Other Benefits Of Using Rapid Rescore
The rapid rescore process does cost money and can get very expensive. Gustan Cho Associates will not ask for the rapid rescore fees upfront. Other reasons to use rapid rescore are to get credit reports updated quickly. For example, let’s say that a borrower-paid off a car loan but it is not reflecting on the credit report. The borrower can get the loan officer proof of payoff and the loan officer can get the credit bureaus to update the consumer credit report in a matter of 3 to 5 days. Rapid rescores can be used to update errors on credit reports as well.
Borrowers With High Debt To Income Ratios
Borrowers with higher debt to income ratios may not qualify for a mortgage unless they pay off certain credit tradelines. However, just because consumers pay off a particular creditor does not mean the credit bureaus will instantly update their credit reports. Loan officers can do rapid rescore when a borrower pays off a particular debt to get their debt to income ratios down. Again, the rapid rescore will take three to five business days to update.
