Can my sister cosign for me for a 9000 dollar loan if she wants to get a loan for a house soon?

I need a 9000 dollar auto loan and need a cosigner. My sister said she would if her bank says she could and still could get a house. So the question is can she cosign for me and then in a few Months still be able to get a loan for a house?

    This will hurt her.

    When you co-sign you are just as reponsbile as the primary borrower.

    That 9K will directly reduce the monthly amount of mortgage she will qualify for.

    It will increase her debt / income ratio.

    It will also be considered "new credit" which dings her score for 6 months.

    After new credit, the loan payments will have to be steady for 2 years for the score to improve.

    BUT... the 9K will still decrease the amount of home she will qualify for due to her debt being higher.

    Wow... your sister really knows very little about credit.

    Are you sure she is ready to buy a house?

    If she has enough money for the downpayment on a house, then she could just loan you the $9000 herself and does not need to cosign. If she does not have $9000, then she cannot buy a house.

    Finding the right answer and finding a good, trusted loan lender online is very rare as a result of so numerous fraudsters that claim to be true lender whereas they are scam.

    I'm posting this information to whoever is in need of financial assistance be it loan for establishment, debt consolidation loan, business loan, personal loan and other relevant purpose. Mr Johnson Fred Joe referred me to Mr Charles Bricks, I thought it was one of those scammer, I as a victim of them so I was very careful not to fall into their hands again. I contacted Mr Charles Bricks and he processed my application, though I take a lot of security process before my application was approved, they said due to so many bad customers, who have made away with their fund. I was given the loan after they have verified that a genuine borrower.

    I'm glad to let you all know that I have been able to pay my bills, start up my fashion designing shop with the loan Mr Charles gave me.

    Please this is a special note, do not contact them unless you are a genuine person.

    Their contact;

    Endeavor to inform him that I Loveth Fisher referred you because they only attend to those who are referred to them by their old customers like me.

    Make wise use of this information, it is written that if you are not informed, you will be deformed and also note to be informed at all is better than bad information. Be wise!

    Good luck.

    The $9000 would count as a liability she has, so would cut down on the amount of loan she could get and might keep her from getting one at all.
