What Does it Take to Qualify For a Mortgage?
We know time is valuable and completing our program is a commitment. You’re over halfway there and hopefully you’re feeling more confident in your home purchasing journey and overall financial understanding.
Talking about the home purchasing journey… it is time to start looking at your mortgage qualifiers and how you’re stacking up.

Based on the above, do feel like you are on track to qualify for a mortgage? If not, reach out to us and we can connect you with the right resources.
If things are still a little fuzzy or you think you’re not going to qualify by the end of your lease, now is a good time to call your counselor or coach and discuss your concerns with them 877-349-4447.
