What documents do I need to apply for a new home loan?
Items needed for a loan application may include W-2s and tax returns from the last two years, current pay stubs with year to date earnings, statements for checking, savings, other bank or investment accounts, proof of monthly rental or mortgage payments, and the names of current or past employers. There are also programs available for buyers with non-traditional careers; don’t let the fact that you don’t have access to some of these documents keep you from applying. Two years of employment history is required.
What is a credit score?
Along with a credit report, lenders will request a credit score (FICO) to help determine whether or not you are eligible for a loan. The score is a credit overview and is weighed by the following:
- 35% payment history
- 30% amounts owed
- 15% length of credit history
- 10% new credit
- 10% types of credit used
- A median credit score (FICO) ranges from 690 to 740, though many loan programs consider scores as low as 580.
