Denver Mortgage Banker Jason M. Ruedy, also known as The Home Loan Arranger, is on a mission to help as many people as possible refinance their current mortgage or obtain a purchase loan before mortgage interest rates rise. With interest rates still sitting at record low levels, Mr. Ruedy believes that now is the best possible time to either refinance or apply for a new mortgage. However, the lowest available mortgage interest rates are usually given to individuals with the highest credit scores. Therefore, Mr. Ruedy offers advice on how to raise a credit score prior to applying for a refinance or new mortgage.

On August 5, 2014, RealtyTimes, a website dedicated to providing real estate news and advice published an article entitled How to Improve Your FICO Scores Quickly. The article focuses on the fact that now is a great time to refinance or apply for a purchase loan - but mortgage lenders focus on FICO scores, so it's important for potential borrowers to improve their scores as quickly as possible before attempting to refinance or apply for a new loan.

The article lists several dos and don'ts for individuals attempting to quickly raise their credit score. Some examples of the published tips include: keeping existing credit cards open, not maxing out or consolidating credit card accounts, not transferring transfer credit card balances, not changing change jobs right before applying for a mortgage, paying bills on time, paying down debt, and shopping around for the best possible mortgage terms from multiple lenders.

According to The Home Loan Arranger, there are several other methods not listed in the RealtyTimes article that can be used to try and quickly raise a person's credit score. These methods include:

  • Reviewing your credit report, spotting errors, and disputing all errors until they are corrected.
  • Requesting that your credit limits be raised.
  • Avoiding the establishment of new credit cards, lines of credit, or other types of debt too quickly.

"As a mortgage lender who has been in this business for more than two decades, I've seen first-hand how high and low credit scores can affect the mortgage interest rate offered to potential homebuyers. If anyone is thinking about either refinancing their current mortgage, or applying for a purchase loan, my advice is to plan ahead. Make sure to get your credit score as high as possible before applying for a loan. Don't wait until you're half way through the application process before you start worrying about how you're going to raise your score so you can obtain the best possible interest rate." - Jason M. Ruedy, The Home Loan Arranger
