U.S. Expat international school teacher living and working in Shanghai for the past 15 years with no U.S. credit score.
A condo in Orlando, Florida within a 30 minute drive to several local attractions and amusement parks.
To secure the property, the client needed to borrow $210,000. Client wanted a low rate, 30 year fixed, 20% down mortgage. The seller was about to cancel the transaction because the borrower’s original financing fell through.
Client came to GMG after failing to secure a mortgage with a local Florida broker. The seller was threating to cancel the transaction and keep the client’s deposit as the mortgage loan fell through in the final stages of the transaction. The client had filed all their U.S. tax returns but had been living in Asia for many years without having a U.S. credit accounts. No FICO score.
Client would need to manage their expectations as they no longer had U.S. credit which is paramount in conventional U.S. mortgage lending. GMG loan specialist explained the options and a long term strategy of re-establishing their U.S. credit and refinancing into a conforming loan within 24 months. We spoke with the buyers and seller’s agents and explained the situation and GMG’s three step plan to obtaining the loan. An extension was granted, a mortgage loan only slightly above “prime” rate was secured. Seller, client and agents - Happy. Client is now on their way to re-establishing their U.S. credit and building their real estate portfolio.
