Jeff, please call our office at 248 674-6450 as paying off certain debts can actually hurt your credit score.

You can email us as well but you'll get a faster response with a phone call.
I am a real estate investor. I would like to refinance a rental property to repair a roof and increase cash flow for additional investments.
Sounds like a solid plan but it will require equity in the property as well as proof of income. If real estate investing is your primary source of income, we will need to review your tax returns for the past two years to determine your monthly income. As long as the income keeps you within a qualifying debt ratio, you will be able to cash out up to 75% of the appraised value. Call our office at 248-674-6450 for more information.
Originally, I was a mid 600's but currently I have bad credit mid 500's roughly 10 collections due to an almost divorce need to purchase a home by May no later than June. Income is good and debt to ratio is good too. My wife and I are wanting to correct issues on our credit to put us in a buying position soon. Every credit building place wants tons of money but not really helpful and now trying to gauge others are hard which we just want to live the American dream for our children.
If you do things properly buying a home in May is a very realistic goal. However, it really depends on what types of accounts are in collections as well as if you have any current credit cards or installment loans in good standing. Moving your score from the 500's to the mid 600's is relatively easy if you have a solid plan in place. Call our office at 248-674-6450 and we can help you put the proper plan in place and it won't cost you a thing.
