Derogatory credit marks can hurt your chances of getting a home loan approved, and in these times when buying a home and getting your loan approved is no small challenge even if you have great credit, I thought it might be helpful to see a detailed breakdown of what the waiting period is for various types of loans with derogatory credit marks.

Special thanks is owed to my friends for preparing this detailed list of derogatory credit marks for me: Eric Gausepohl & Matt Gausepohl at www.SummitLendingServices.com.
If you do have some of these derogatory credit marks on your credit report, don’t give up hope. Talk to a sharp loan representative who is knowledgeable, experienced, and professional. Now more than ever, experience in your loan officer is critical to addressing complex issues that could kill your loan. Underwriters seem to be looking for any reason to turn the loan down, so pre-qualifying is more important than ever.
If I can help you buy your home in Sequim, Washington, and get connected with a loan expert who can help you do some pre-qualification work, email or call me. I’d be glad to help. Derogatory credit marks can kill your chances of getting a loan.

I made my appointment with Chuck on a Sunday morning in March, 2013. He showed me 5 houses. Every house he showed me was within my parameters! I was amazed: a real estate who listened, did his research, and didn't waste my time showing me houses I would never buy! I made an offer a few days later. That was the easy part…
Buying a house is always a stressful time in life. Advice to Buyers: choose an agent who is competent, communicates well, and has exceptional follow-up and follow-through! You will spend a lot of time with your agent during the process. Choose someone likable. Go with your gut. I got to know Chuck during the process, and he's a great guy!
You need an agent who is competent to handle and help you negotiate the issues that come up during disclosure, home inspection, appraisal, etc. Chuck's competence is superb! I got truly professional, sound, straightforward advice.
Chuck's communication skills are exceptional: phone, email, fax. He has a wonderful ability to stay "on-point" with what is actually important and doesn't lead you astray on issues that aren't so important.
Chuck's turn-around time on questions, issue resolution, etc. was virtually always within 24 hours. He follows-up, follows-through. He does what he says he will do timely. This relieves a lot of Buyer stress!
