As you may know, the mortgage industry has been in a constant state of change in recent years. Currently most banks require a score of at least 640, however,if you do not have negatives on your credit score but simply a lack of established credit, you may be able to get a mshda loan.

Hi Klessenburger,

There are a few lenders who will, here in Grand Rapids............MetLife home loans is a great place to go for an FHA loan..............I use Jason Jenkins a lot there....................his number is (616) 293-9186

Absolutely. Your best bet is to qualify for an FHA loan. Rates are currently at 5.25% and the down payment is only 3.5%. FHA has much more lenient guidelines for credit approval than anything convetional.

If you want to go a different route, you can get a USDA Rural Housing Loan. That loan will get you 100% financing and has great rates too. There are some geographic restrictions as well as income restrictions to it.

If you would like to call and discuss your loan options, I would be happy to discuss them with you.
