That all depends on what that credit score is, why it is and can anything be done to improve it. A conversation with a trusted local mortgage professional will go a long way in getting the answers you need to move forward. Credit can always be improved, no shames, many people have had challenges.

If you are in immediate need of a mortgage and your scores are well below current underwriting guidelines, you may have to seek a 'hard money' loan that typically requires in the area of 50% down. They are short term only, usually maxing at 18-24 months, and are not cheap.

Fixing the score is your best bet.

Hi Suzanne:

I work with lenders that go as low as a 580 score. Give me a call or send me an email to discuss your situation.

Talk to a mortgage lender or a few. Your best bet is to go to a smaller community bank who portfolios their loans. Call a few and ask.
