When you apply for a home equity loan, most people know FICO and credit score will play into their ability to qualify for a loan. But are you aware of the effect your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio can have?
*Details to note: Spring EQ customers get their cash on average in 21 business days, and as fast as 14 days. This average time is measured from the time we receive all requested documents and assumes your stated income, property and title information provided in your loan application matches your documents and any supporting information collected. The time period calculation to get cash is based on the average funding turn times over the first four months of 2023, assumes the funds are wired, excludes weekends and excludes the government mandated disclosure waiting period. Typical applicants are required to provide a current and valid completed application, proof of income, mortgage statement, home hazard insurance, and a photo ID.
Applicants are typically not required to provide proof of assets, and proof of income may be more extensive for self-employed borrowers. Quarterly, we calculate The Spring EQ Cash-In-Pocket Index™ which is the average reduction of our customers debt payments where at least one debt was paid off with loan proceeds. The most recent Cash-In-Pocket Index™ reported a reduction in debt payments of $530.
Any pre-qualification or “Home EQ” value is in no way a pre-approval, indication of eligibility, or binding underwriting decision.
