Our last blog, Tips For Getting Your Loan Approved, focused on what you need to do to make sure your loan gets the clear to close. This week we wanted to share with you some pretty easy tips on what not to do when you are trying to get a loan for your dream house.
DON’T – Close or open any asset accounts or transfer funds between account without talking to your lender first. Opening accounts could impact your credit which impacts your bottom line.
DON’T – Change jobs/employers without inquiring about the impact this change might have on your loan
DON’T – Quit your job or change your status from full time to part. In order to get your loan the lender has to verify your employment.
