7 Ways to Quailfy for a Home Mortgage in Manalapan NJ 07726 Manalapan Realtor  Roy Giordano 732-213-2438       A few years ago, home buyers were qualifying for mortgages who normally wouldn't qualify for a mortgage. It was easy to get a mortgage because homes were flying off the market before they were even listed for sale. Lenders saw dollar signs, so they found a way to help buyers get a mortgage with what many called creative financing. Things have certainly changed in today's housing market. Qualifying for a mortgage is harder than it was a few years ago, but it's not impossible. I've advised many clients in Manalapan on how they can qualify for a mortgage in today's market. Here are some helpful tips:                                        1. Inspect all three of your credit repor...
