Home Buying in Cleveland>Question Details

Jamie B, Home Buyer in Cleveland, OH

What are the best loans to use for a fixer-upper property, if I have a lower credit score?

Asked by Jamie B, Cleveland, OH Wed Mar 27, 2013

My credit was messed up by my ex. I have paid off everything but the score still is still low. I am planning to move to Cleveland within the next year and I would love my first home to be a fixer-upper property that I can make my own.

There are loan programs designed to finance the purchase and restoration of “fixer upper” properties. I would look into a FHA 203K Mortgage. It will be important to improve your credit score as much as possible. If you would like more information feel free to contact me.
