Buyers Rejected for Loans Can Now Find Out Why

As published in today’s real estate news by National Association of Realtors, home buyers who are rejected for a loan will now be provided a free credit score from the lender that rejected their loan application.  According to the article, this “will help provide new insights into why they may have been rejected for a loan or did not qualify for the best, lowest rate.”  This is a new requirement under the Dodd-Frank financial reform law.

Seller Tip

When placing your house or condo up for sale the question may come up, “Do I need to accept the offer with highest price?”  The answer to that question is “No.”.  You may decide to accept a lower priced offer from a better qualified buyer, or an offer with more attractive terms.
