The Ten Commandments of Lending

The Ten Commandments of Lending

Okay so one of the guys here in my new office brought this flyer in to me.  It's a very useful tool for buyers to make sure they don't sabotage their own loan while in the process!

ten commandments

1.  Thou shalt NOT change jobs or become self-employed until after closing

2.  Thou shalt NOT buy a car, truck or van unless you plan to live in it

3.  Thou shalt NOT use your credit cards or let payments fall behind

4.  Thou shalt NOT spend any of the money you saved for your down payment

5.  Thou shalt NOT buy furniture before you buy your house

6.  Thou shalt NOT originate any new inquiries on your credit report  

(Don't test drive cars as they sometimes pull your credit without you being aware...)

7.  Thou shalt not make any large deposits into your bank account(s)

8.  Thou shalt NOT change banks or bank accounts

9.  Thou shalt NOT co-sign for anyone

10.  Thou shalt NOT purchase anything until after closing

So a big thank you to Steve Chavarria for providing this useful tool and for giving me permission to use it!

If you are thinking of moving into my area of Southern California, please don't hesitate to contact me for more local information and listings.  I will be more than happy to answer any questions and get you on the right path to homeownership!
