If you already met with a Loan Officer, or a couple of them, and you have been told that your income isn't enough to qualify for anything, then you need a co-borrower. This way there is more income on the application to qualify with.

Check with several local lenders. Some may have some special programs for low income buyers.

Dear prakritee02:

If you have a substantial down payment you can look into hard money lenders. Even with a low income you can usually qualify for something, unless you also have a lot of debt. If you want, give me a call. I know many bankers and I can see if one of them can help you. Either way, good luck!

If your income is not high enough to get a loan and a
low interst rate. Then a co-borrower might be the best idea.

If you have been seeking a loan through Bank of America, Chase, Citi or Wells Fargo, a rejection most certainly could be expected. You need to work with lenders who are actually lending to support the local economy. These local lenders DO provide loans to small business and citizens through mortgage loans.

Check with a local credit union. They are liberal with membership eligibility, have super low closing costs and have more flexible standards. If this does not appeal to you, then you can select a "A" or "B" graded local lender who has a history of investing in the community. Simply enter your zip code or city name:

Now, if income still remains the issue, you need to determine home much income you need then set the stage to increase your income. As Javier suggested, you may also seek a co-borrower.

Best of success to you,

Hi, All you need to do is contact a reputable mortgage broker an be honest with them about your current situation. They will assess you needs and financial situation then guide you accordingly. You can go directly to a bank but keep in mind you will only get what that bank has to offfer. A broker will shop for the best rate and loan product for you.

If you haven't visited with any licensed loan officer yet, begin by doing so.....
