I am a local real estate broker in Danville and do cover Tracy, and I have a number of mortgage lenders that I can put you in touch with depending on your situation. If you are interested, you can call me at 925-263-9872.
If you look at alternative financing sources such as hard money, you may find a taker, but I assure you it won't be any where near 4%; try 3 times that.

Although there are lenders who will underwrite ficos in the high 500s, it is an uphill battle.
We need to look at why your credit scores are low.
Do you have credit cards that are over 50% of their maximum limit? If so, you should be paying those down and having your credit reran after the balances are paid down. This can bump your rate a TON.
With 30% down, you have cash to do that.
Your second challenge is rate: rates below 4% are gone by the wayside, unless you are willing to go with an interim ARM product.
If you would like to discuss this in more detail, please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
you can get all kinds of info on home buying.
If your credit is not so good be careful. You may find a lender willing o give you a mortgage loan, but you will not get the best terms and conditions.
Best of luck to you!!!
