I would suggest that you pick up the phone and talk to a lender or two. Let the lender tell you what your options are.

Good luck!

For buying a house, it would really depend on your total debt. It can always be smart to refinance because you may qualify for a lower interest rate.

Hello there,

It is not expressly required that you have a 2 year history of overtime in order to use it to qualify for a mortgage. However, as you have found, it is an uphill battle and requires an experienced lender that can use discretion in this type of situation. Please contact me if you have not had any luck and I will be happy to take a look at everything and discuss it with my underwriter so that we can really know whether it will work or not.

I am available to help you at your convenience if you wish.

I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.

I understand that there are a lot of "issues" with these type at times but I will not qualify for conventional loans due to credit, so alas, this is my only option if I don't want to keep "wasting" the rent money.
If you know of any homes fitting the above description, please let me know.
