You probably will struggle to get a conventional mortgage (if possible), but you do have another alternative: seller financing.

Your best bet is the current lender that owns your mortgage. Anything under 620 these days is considered damaged credit, and you're not going to find a lender wanting to take on another bank's problems, however your current lender may be willing to work with you on restructuring your mortgage if it helps avoid a foreclosure. You likely would not be able to consolidate any other debts though.

If you are over 62 yrs old you may be able to do a reverse mortgage. These loans are not based on credit scores, only your age and the amount of equity you have in the home

Best of luck
