Yes you can get approved with a 587 and 647! You probably don't need to get your scores up anymore. There are Lenders that can do a 600 mid score home loan. They just aren't always easy to find and some try to over charge you on the rate and fee's. I have had a lot of my clients with 580-600 scores approved for a home loan with The Lenders Network, not bad rates either.

Hello Julio,

There are new programs available that will allow to buy with a bad credit, but they do require more money down and their interest rate is higher. The best line of action is to fix your wife's credit.

You need to find a good mortgage pro that can recommend a credit repair company.
There are many credit repair companies, but not all are legit.

Other things to do is to get rid of your wife's outstanding debt - completely, if possible,
or get it down to 30% of available credit, on all credit lines.

If her credit is "underdeveloped", then you need to open secure credit card lines of credit.
You need a total of 4 good credit lines - 24 months long each.
Make sure that your credit lines are reported to credit agencies - by asking the bank rep.

Additionally, you can contact credit agencies requesting to eliminate the wrong info - if any.
They are supposed to respond within 30 days.

Hope this helps,

It seems that your scores in your range should work. Lenders like myself can go as low as 580 when it comes to credit scores. Of course, your other finances will need to be in place as well including your income, debt, assets, employment, expenses, etc. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender like myself to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!
