With all the financing changes, I was wondering if bridge loans still exist?
They actually do. In 2013 I had two clients who used bridge loans to help with purchasing their homes. I have names of the lenders if you ever want them. Hope that helps!!!

I have a credit score of 551 can i get a home loan anywhere?
You can get a credit card from your bank with a very small limit. Buy something for say $50.00 then pay it back on time. Do this several times and your score will improve.
