Having $5,000 saved for a down payment is a great start in that area. For an FHA mortgage, most lenders require a 640+ credit score for the last 2-3 years now. Prospect Mortgage is one of the few direct lenders to offer an FHA 580-639 FICO loan program. Credit profile is a major factor in a mortgage approval. Generally, there should be no late payments, new collections accounts/charge-offs/liens/judgments in the last 12 months.

With a low down payment, look for a area that qualifies for USDA ( no down).
Closing costs can be paid by the seller or added to purchase price as long as you are buying the property a bit under appraisal value. If not youll have to go FHA with 3.5% down.
