How to qualify for mortgages when my credit is not great or if I have poor credit

Most of the people in Ontario, Canada are still not aware that they can be qualified to meet the mortgage even though their credit is not great or they obtain poor credit or short term employment. Of course, you'll be qualified for mortgage if you've got some problem in your credit score.

Your interest rate may be a bit higher in comparison to perfect credit one, and the actual higher rate depend on situation of each individual. In addition, you may also require higher down payment that again depends on each individual's situation but you'll obviously be able to own a mortgage in Ontario, Canada.


Steps to help with mortgage qualification

Firstly, you need to improve your credit score in order to qualify for mortgages in case your credit score is week. It’s the only best way that makes you qualify for mortgages. Therefore, you can follow following tips for improving your credit score if you want to qualify for mortgages:

1. Always check out your credit report on the regular basis, correct entire errors and inaccuracies that are responsible for damaging your credit score.

2. Make your entire payment on time. Ensure that you’re making your payment at least within a month.

3. Don’t apply for numerous credit cards at short duration of time as well as on the cards that you’re not likely to be offered. It’s necessary to restrict these all for minimizing inquires on your credit card. You should apply for new credit card only if you’re in absolutely need.

4. Always obtain a secured Credit card if you desire help building your credit from re-establishment or scratch credit after consumer proposal or bankruptcy.

5. It’s always recommended to write down a short explanation to the credit card agencies, if you’re unable to make the payment at time due to any illness, family issues or unemployment. If you did so, then they will affix your explanation with the credit report. In addition, they also call your entire creditors for explaining the circumstance.

6. If you obtain very short credit history or your credit score is damaged severely then don’t be worried because there are still some option that can help you to deal with this and improve your credit over time. It’s recommended to consider the new account in responsible way and pay entire needed requirement on time.

7. You should always try to maintain your entire account balance as lowest as possible. If your account balance is high then it may negatively affect your credit score, as you’re likely to miss any sort of required payment.

8. You should never open a new credit card which is not required only for increasing your available credit score. It’s necessary to avoid this because this approach can backfire and lower your credit score indeed.

9. Gain knowledge about your current FICO® Credit Score as well as what appears on your credit report. Score Power® offers you the immediate access to your credit report including the FICO score that you've at present.
