Asked by Caitlin Michel, Lafayette, IN Sat Feb 2, 2013

still trying to find our 3bedroom out here in the 47909 area. seeing as how everything has gone, there is close to no chance of getting a home without a home-loan. or "pre-approval"

We offer a no document loan in Indiana for Owner Occupiers, but we require 35% down based on the purchase price. If you have a down payment that's what we require, as the financing is non credit score based. This loan is also open to distressed properties and fixer uppers. The house must appraise for the purchase price on the contract and that's the only underwriting requirement. Please let me know if you'd like more information.

Caitlin, I have a lender that offers a loan program for people with no credit at all. So if he has no credit established you could actually get into a new 3 bedroom home for around $700 a month that my company offers. Feel free to email me me at ryanw@yourarborhome.com Thanks, Ryan

Hi Caitlin,
It is difficult but not impossible to get a home loan with a lower credit score. Different lenders have different requirements and it seems like those requirements change daily sometimes. I would recommend you talk with a mortgage broker as they sometimes have access to more than 1 type of loan. Try Ann Satterfield at Tippecanoe Mortgage at 765-448-3200 or Carrie Johnston at Approved Mortgage 765-543-1823. Good luck
