Hi Nina,

There might be, depending upon a whole host of factors. Do you have money to put down? What caused your credit challenges? Where are you looking to buy? What is your job situation? And the list goes on.

Depending upon your answers and your personal situation, different options may exist. I would advise you to speak with a couple of different lenders, including those where you bank, to see what options might work. I would also advise you to sit down with a Realtor to pick their brain and see if they know of any programs within the community you want to live in that might help.

Some cities have first time buyer programs that are grants and the qualifier is the home's location and not the credit score of the buyer.

If you would like additional information, please feel free to get in touch and I will be happy to see how I can help.

Take care and have a wonderful day!
