Hello,

You mentioned about running a healthcare business. I was wondering if you have looked into the zoning where the property is located. Each city has different criteria and requirements when allowing certain types of businesses to operate. I would make sure you first contact your city building manager to learn about the feasibility of opening at the location.

Of course, I am speaking from the real estate standpoint. Whether VA will alllow to use your home as business is a different subject that you need to also consider from the outset.

Good Luck !

You could qualify for 10% down with 500-579 fico. If we could do a little credit repair at no cost and get your fico up to minimum 580, you would qualify for only Half Percent down FHA 30 yr fixed rate. Home prices have changed in the last year and chances are you would qualify VA no no if we look at your file we could advise what loan program we could fund...

You mention that you are a first time homebuyer, and I see that you have a couple of responses from mortgage brokers. If you are looking for a Realtor, please contact me and we can discuss in more detail what you're looking for in a house.

I have a loan with 10% down with minimum 500-579 fico. If we can get your scores to minimum 580 fico, you would qualify for only Half Percent Down. I would have to look at your specific credit issues to submit VA or Cal-Vet as although they are lenient loan programs and not fico driven, we need to see the whole picture. We offer credit repair at no cost for our clients...

Looking,
Your score will be your first obstacle, your down payment second and business plan third.
After years of loose lending the mortgage world blew up and terms got tougher. Even 6 years ago, a 500 score would have a difficult time getting a 0 down loan.
You can work on improving your credit for starters. Dispute any derogatory items, pay down your balance, get more credit with a solid pay back history will all help, but take some time.
VA does offer 0 down, but you still need decent credit, income and job time. When your scores go up, at or near 600 would be my goal, you can talk to a VA lender again.
VA also isn't a business lender; they offer loans on primary residences. If you plan to live in the home, you might be able to work out of it, but it wouldn't boost your chances by bringing this up to the Loan Officer. Your loan will be based on your current income from your present job. Bluesky or future potential income will not help and likely hurt until it's an established reality. Self employed borrowers typically need 2 years of income for lenders to consider it.
I'm not trying to be a downer; I love entrepreneurs and wish you the best. Hopefully you can get your credit score heading up and be able to proceed in a few months.

Hi there,

I don't believe your situtation will work for a VA loan. In particular, the plan to turn the house into a health care busines.
