Yes you can get approved with a 618! You probably don't need to get your scores up anymore. There are a few Lenders that can do a 600 mid score home loan. They just aren't always easy to find and some try to over charge you on the rate and fee's. I have had a lot of my clients with 580-600 scores approved for a home loan with The Lenders Network, not bad rates either.

Hi Mario,

Ben gives good advice. You need to work on improving your credit scores. You could also try a different lender, but it would still be best to improve your scores and then reapply for the loan. Your scoares are not great. If they were 100 points higher, you would have been approved.

Hello Mario,

Credit is tight these days. Folks who could get loans with ease a few year sagao are finding it very difficult now.

There may be other factors other than your credit scores. I would consult with a mortgage consultant and find out what you can do to increase your overall chances of securing a loan at a later date.

Best of Luck to You!!!

Different lenders have different guide lines. It's an interview process can talk to other lenders and ask them if your circumstances meets their guidelines and do their terms meet your expectation. In other words make some phone calls and find someone else.

There are ways to increase your credit score. I would focus on them, and reapply in 6 months.
