What stands in the way? Guidelines, pages and pages and pages of guidelines. Minimum credit scores, maximum loan to value, source of funds, debt to income, debts that are part of the borrower DTI, debts that don’t have to be counted in the DTI, appraised values, home types that eligible for funding and those that are not, and it goes on and on and on. Their are hundreds, if not thousands of pages of guidelines. It my job to help you through this maze and get you the best deal.
