Buying Lake Mary Homes for Sale After Bankruptcy

Wed, Dec 29, 2010 at 8:37PM

It is no secret that bankruptcy can have lasting negative effects on a person’s life. One such negative effect is that it can make it very difficult for an individual to get a mortgage loan on a Lake Mary home for sale. However, purchasing a Lake Mary home for sale is no longer impossible for the person who has had to declare bankruptcy at some point during their life.

Rest assure that just because an individual has either filed bankruptcy or has had to foreclose on a home does not mean that they will never again be able to be a home owner. With that said it has to be understood that it is necessary to re-establish a FICO credit score as well as have enough money to put a substantial deposit down for a home. Potential purchasers of Lake Mary homes for sale who in the past have had to file for bankruptcy will have to pay more on a monthly basis to get a loan. The reason being is simply because their past makes them are a greater risk to default on a loan from a lender.

If you are seeking out a loan to purchase a Lake Mary home for sale less then two years after declaring bankruptcy you will need an impeccable payment history since the bankruptcy occurred.

From a lender point of view buying a home is a major investment no matter who the buyer is. This means that if you are trying to get a loan for the purchase of a Lake Mary home for sale and have had to file bankruptcy lenders need to know that the buyer is now financially stable.  There are ways to improve your credit score. They are as followed:

1.      Do not take a loan at a high interest rate since it will create problems in the future.

2.      Don’t be too quick to purchase a home after bankruptcy is filed.

3.      Only used secured credit cards. They will limit your credit each month to the amount of money deposited into the account that is specifically allocated to that credit card.

Filing for bankruptcy does not have to be the end all for those who have had the misfortune of declaring bankruptcy in these very difficult economic times. Be assured that it is possible to once again become a homeowner.
