TransUnion found in a survey of 1,843 consumers conducted in March that 32 percent of millennials polled plan to buy a home in the next 12 months—but 43 percent of them have what would be considered a “subprime” credit score (between 300 and 600, according to VantageScore).“Credit scores are a crucial component of the home-buying process, impacting everything from the size of a mortgage payment to the interest rate on a home loan,” said Ken Chaplin, SVP for TransUnion. “People with subprime credit may face financial barriers to homeownership, making it difficult for their dream home to become a reality.”With credit scores that low, those who want to buy a home may not be able to qualify for a mortgage. Credit.com reported last September that borrowers whose mortgages closed in September had an average score of 723, and that was actually down from 732 the previous February. In September, some lenders were rejecting borrowers with scores as high as 694.Out of millennials surveyed by TransUnion, 47 percent of them said they were worried about having a low credit score, 59 percent said they were worried about not having enough money for a down payment, and 56 percent of them said they were concerned about not being able to qualify for a low interest rate.“People with subprime credit may face financial barriers to homeownership, making it difficult for their dream home to become a reality.”Ken Chaplin, SVP, TransUnionAmong other age groups surveyed, 17 percent of consumers ages 35 to 54 said they plan to buy a home within the next 12 months. The same share of that age category, 17 percent, had a super prime credit score, according to TransUnion. Only 6 percent of consumers aged 55 or older said they plan to buy a home in the next 12 months, but a much higher percentage (34 percent) had a super prime credit score.Homeowners of all ages should prepare well for the homebuying process by taking steps such as checking their credit reports at least three months before the process begins, planning early and keeping an eye on their credit score over time, and researching mortgage and interest rates to find a competitive offer.”The homebuying process begins well before you start looking for real estate,” said Chaplin. “A credit score, which significantly impacts the home financing process, is built on good spending habits and a pattern of responsible borrowing established over a lifetime.”  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago April 25, 2016 1,316 Views About Author: Brian Honea Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Credit Scores First-Time Homebuyers Homeownership Millennials 2016-04-25 Brian Honea Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Tests exclude H5N1 cases in Kuwait, confirm 1 in Indonesia

first_imgApr 5, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – A second round of H5N1 avian influenza tests came back negative today on four Bangladeshi men who initially tested positive after helping cull chickens in Kuwait, while tests confirmed the infection in a 15-year-old Indonesian girl, according to news services.The four men were hospitalized in Kuwait—which has had no confirmed human cases—2 days ago after experiencing flu-like symptoms. Preliminary tests for the H5N1 virus were positive, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported yesterday.Kuwaiti Health Minister Maasouma Saleh Al-Mubarak, in a press release today from the Kuwait News Agency, said confirmatory tests at the US Navy laboratory in Cairo (NAMRU-3) indicated the workers did not have avian flu. She said the patients would remain under medical supervision and treatment for 10 more days.For unknown reasons, very few H5N1 cases have occurred in poultry cullers and certain other presumably high-risk groups, such as veterinarians and workers in live-bird markets, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported.Samples from nine poultry workers in South Korea who assisted with outbreaks in 2003 and 2004 showed evidence of past H5N1 infection, but they had no clinical symptoms. During Hong Kong’s first outbreak in 1997, a few poultry cullers, household contacts of patients, and healthcare workers tested positive despite having no serious illness, according to reports in medical journals.Meanwhile, Indonesia announced that a second round of H5N1 testing confirmed that a 15-year-old girl from Jakarta had H5N1 avian flu, Xinhua and other news services reported today. The girl, who fell ill on Mar 28, is hospitalized in intensive care, according to an AFP report. The girl has looked after chickens and birds, the Xinhua report said.The WHO has confirmed 81 H5N1 cases with 63 deaths in Indonesia. But since Jan 29, Indonesia has reported as confirmed at least 11 cases (including the one today) that have not yet been recognized by the WHO.See also:Sep 21, 2006, CIDRAP News story “Five Koreans had H5N1 virus but no illness”Jan 26, 2006, CIDRAP News story “WHO report highlights bird flu puzzles”last_img read more
