Strengthen your credit. The higher your FICO score, which ranges from 300 to 850, the better interest rate you’ll qualify for. This is extremely important. The difference between a 4.5% interest mortgage and a 5% interest mortgage can mean tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.

Imagine your client only owns half your property? And the other property owner could not sign, could you find them a partial ownership mortgage?
Flounce found themselves in just that bind. She inherited 1/2 of her aunt’s house – her brother inherited the other half. She needed to borrow money right away for repairs to the house— the problem was that her brother was in the middle of a nasty divorce, and couldn’t sign anything.
