Financing in Quincy>Question Details

Lindseyj, Home Buyer in Quincy, MA

is there a mortgage that will work for us???

Asked by Lindseyj, Quincy, MA Sat May 7, 2011

basically we have enough money in the bank to pay for this house cash(we would prefer not too). Here is the problem our credit is in the 600's, my husband was with his company for 10 years but is now laid off. I am a Nurse but just got the job(i am newly graduated from nursing school). so Im wondering if we put like 50% down and can show proof(our bank account) of being able to pay for it cash plus plenty left over, is there someone that would lend to us???? Any advice you have is appreciated! thank you!

Hi Linseyj. If your husband is currently laid off, he will not be able to be on the mortgage. You will have to qualify on your income alone. However, your husband can always be added to the title/deed at a later date if you wish. Also, given how much homes are still depreciating, unless this home is going substantial below its conversative estimate of value, and so long as you can still qualify, I would put as little down as possible. Right now your money would earn you a greater return in mutual funds than a property. Also, by getting an FHA mortgage, once the market turns around, you can always put more down on the home or pay it off completely without incurring any penalties.

Hi Linsdeyj,

Sure... A credit score in the 600's would not preclude you to getting a loan, especially with a substantial down payment. Many buyers think that they need perfect credit to get a loan, when the reality is there are many programs to compare. Your best bet is to speak to a local, qualified lender who has access to many programs for a borrower like you. Get several options and compare the quotes to find the best one for your situation! Good Luck!

The best thing for you to do is to find a good, local lender and they will be able to help you explore your options. I work with Residential Home Funding here in New Jersey, they know almost every program that is available. I feel certain, if there is a program that will work for you, they know about it. If you would like me to, I can talk to my local representative and see if he can recommend someone in Massachussetts. My email address is
