An adjustable rate mortgage is often chosen by borrowers with damaged credit
because of the following benefits:
- Lenient qualifying standards
- Low introductory rates
- Varied options for adjustment periods, allowing your rate to remain the
same for anywhere from one year to five years.
- Rate ceilings to keep your interest rate from rising to high
- Lower initial payments generally prompt lenders to approve larger loans
- When interest rate indexes fall, an adjustable rate falls as well, unlike
a fixed rate, which does not allow the borrower to benefit from dropping rates
Securing your mortgage with a home or expensive automobile is another way for someone with bad credit to receive a loan with low interest rates and a lower down payment. Secured loans allow lenders to lend larger amounts at lower rates and often allows them to over look certain mistakes on your credit history.
Perfect credit not necessary to find a mortgage. Buying a home is still a possibility for those with bad credit and even bankruptcy. Finding the right mortgage for you should not be a painful experience. Unwarranted fears of rejection or of ridiculously high interest rates may be keeping you from buying the home of your dreams. However, the good news is that there are many loans available for people with less than perfect credit. Bad credit does not have to stand in the way of finding your mortgage.
