It’s okay to need a little help from your family (or friends)

Many borrower’s need a little additional help to qualify for their mortgage. It is not unusual for a co-signor or co-mortgagor to be enlisted to help the borrower qualify.

In either case, the additional borrower is agreeing that if the borrower has difficulty making payments, they will help. A co-signor, is only signing onto the debt and not taking an ownership interest in the property. A co-mortgagor is signing onto the debt as well as the ownership interest in the property.

Different situations require different solutions so, if you’re thinking about buying a home with a co-signor or co-mortgagor, give us a call. We’re here to help explain the different options so that you can make an informed decision regarding what’s best for you.

If you’re interested in owning a home this year, give us a call at (215) 493-3752.
