Low FICO Score and Bad Credit Mortgage Refinance Applicants Are Approved and Ecstatic

Homeowners who think they can't refinance their real estate mortgage because of a low FICO score or bad credit, need to think again. There are many homeowners today who got caught up in the mortgage loan implosion. This occurred after foreclosure rates went up and the more lenient loan programs were eliminated as a result of foreclosures increasing. These homeowners may have got into their home loan mortgages with low qualifications and low FICO scores and now they cannot get out of them. Some borrowers are in adjustable rate mortgage loans where the interest rates continue to rise. As the real estate mortgage crisis continues, lending guidelines continue to get tighter, increasing the number of homeowners who cannot get refinanced.

In the face of the lending underwriting guidelines getting stricter, the real estate market does not seem to be cooperating. As the number of foreclosures and bank owned properties goes up, real estate equity goes down due to the declining real estate markets. As the equity shrinks on real estate, the credit denials increase. The reason for this is of course, lower equity increases the risk of the lender.

Many homeowners who have been told, “NO!" for a mortgage refinance may have given up on trying. They may have given up too soon. The future may be brighter for some who apply. Right now there is a program available 95% loan to value with cash out to those with low FICO scores and in some cases can go to as low as a 530 FICO score. The interest rate for this low equity loan program is about the same as the best conforming rates for borrowers with 20% equity or more.

The loan program is far more lenient than standard agency loan programs which are Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac approved. This will help many homeowners perhaps get out of the jam they are in buy getting them refinanced into a lower rate and help them take some cash out too. The first step is to contact a seasoned mortgage expert to assist you in your mortgage refinance.
