Be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously, therefore for a personalized answer, visit with any licensed loan officer.

Hi Eduardo,

You need to speak to a lender and get pre-approved for a loan. It is a free process and you will find out exactly how much you are qualified to borrow on what terms.

Dear Eduardo....It seems that you would be in a good position to purchase. The first place to start would be your banking institution. It probably would only take a few minutes to sit down with a lending officer to make an evaulation for pre-approval. I hope this help and best of luck to you.

You have a number of options, but first go to the lender of your choice & get Pre-qualified for a mortgage. Without a Pre-qualification letter most sellers will not consider your offer. Lenders also have minimum mortgage amount requirements to make it worth their while.

If your cash available for purchase is 90-95% of the asking price, try offering a simple cash purchase. No financing hassle and lower closing costs. Really depends on the market value.

OR ask the seller to finance the balance for a short term. With your large down payment , the seller should be able to pay off any mortgage balance, pay closing costs and walk away with some cash in pocket with limited risk. They will want a copy of your credit report, so check it out before making your offer.

The only way to know is by calling a lender who can run your credit and review your entire application. You say your credit is "fair". Please don't share any personal details online of course.
But a mortgage broker needs these details to assess whether any problems you may have had in the past might cause you not to get a loan - even a small one- today.

Best of luck :)

Hi Eduardo,
You should be able to do that. Give m a call or text and I'll connect you with a local lender.

As long as your credit score is at least in the mid 600's it shouldn't be too difficult if as you write you'll be putting down well over 50% . Just speak with a couple of local lenders and I'm sure you'll find yourself a good offer for a mortgage. You may want to consider only taking a 15 year note if the amount your borrowing is relatively small as this will get you a better rate.

I wish you all the best.
