Step 3: Get Prepared to Buy Your House.

credit report

Credit Report

Your credit score is based upon your spending, payment, and credit history. It is represented by a number between 300 to 850. The higher your credit score is, the easier it can be to get approved for your mortgage.

How to get prepared: We recommend you get a free yearly credit report to learn what your credit score is before applying for your mortgage.

job stability

Job Stability

We prefer to see a pattern of proven income from employment stability. 

How to get prepared: Try to apply for your home loan when you have been employed at your current job for at least two years. If it's less than that, don't worry as we look at your entire employment history during the mortgage approval process.

down payment

Down Payment

The initial money you pay on the total cost of your house is known as your down payment.  At DuGood, you can get up to 95% Conventional financing, which means you must have at least 5% of the sales price as down payment.

How to get prepared: Take time to save your money before buying a home as a larger down payment can help save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

debt to income ratio

Debt-to-Income Ratio

Your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is calculated from how much of your total monthly income (before taxes are taken out) goes towards paying off your debt. This helps us to understand what percentage of your income will go towards your home loan.
