Sayeed and Mika were looking to refinance their primary residence to pay out their first mortgage and consolidate about $77,000 in other debt.
After losing his job a year earlier, Sayeed is now employed full time. Mika, on the other hand, is somewhat more stable, working full time for the past six years. Homeowners for 11 years, their beacon scores are 544 and 675, respectively. Another plus: they rent out their basement apartment for $1,500 a month.
Losing a job is stressful for anyone. If debt obligations can’t be met, credit scores will be affected, and getting credit in the future could also be more difficult. For Sayeed and Mika, debt consolidation made a lot of sense. In fact, taking this approach reduced their monthly payments by $2,400.
