Can you get home loan in Indiana with score below 600?

Asked by Mrileyoct1, Clarksville, IN Sun May 15, 2011

Looking to buy a home that is well below apraised value. Problem is never really had any credit (no car loans, credit cards or anything) Have just taken 2 credit cards out and keep the balances beloew 15% on them and have never been late. However there were a few things that had been turned into collections which I have paid off in full and they have been updated on my credit. Still my score is not above 600 so I was sent to a credit repair guy. He gave me letters to mail out and told me to open up another line of credit which I did. Not sure if this was a scam or not. As it stands I have 1 score above 600 but have been told that I need 2 scores of 600 to quailify for a loan. I know that I may pay more for intrest but if I could just get approved and then let my nimbers keep going up then I could refinace. Is there any help out there?

Yes lenders are able to go down to a 580 credit score for FHA loans. They are not always easy to find but we have a few that we work with I can refer you to. Please email or go to our website if you need any help.
