Applying for mortgage, wondering about qualifications based on my information.?
My husband and I are moving back from Texas to Virginia and are seeking a mortgage to purchase a home of listed price 639,000.00. We plan to offer 620,000.00. Assuming our offer is accepted, we would plan to put down 124,000.00 (20%). We would like to mortgage 500,000.00. My husband’s company has made 20-30k for 2006 and 2007. Thus far for 2008, we have made a verifiable income of approximately 996,000.00 per year, since about March-April. I have been told we have moderate – good credit (says the cell phone lady – but I’m not even sure the credit matters as much as the income). And We have a single loan out for a vehicle for approximately 25,000.00.
My question is: How easy would it be for us to mortgage 500,000.00 being self-employed, if we can verify our income by bank statement for this year only? Will the mortgage people work with us, and can we get a rate (6% or so) which is good still, like everyone else who makes this money?
We would like to purchase our first home badly, as we have been renting for years…hopefully I’ll still be excited after this!
Thank you in advance!
