Good evening Dawnygirl83,

We see many credit reports with low credit scores (anything less than 620), and often many scores in the 500's. This is BAD credit. If you are one of the folks affected by this terrible economy, you have a low credit score and you have a dream of buying a home, here's some simple advice for you.

It is unlikely you could be approved for mortgage financing with that credit score at this time.

Beware of any mortgage professionals promising you an approval with such a low score. Wait on buying a home. I recommend you take the time to resolve your credit issues.

First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.

Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.

I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.

Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams. Find more from the FTC HERE.

The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.

You can get an FHA loan with a 620 middle score with some lending institutions but not many. I would recommend finding a broker or service to help you locate a reputable lender that can approve your loan at a decent rate. I have client's who have got approved and received a good rate at The Lenders Network with FHA and VA home loans. If anyone can find you a loan they can! ... more

Do not rent in Hammond. Especially if you have children who attend public school. Will likely be a huge mistake that you will regret. I just moved after living there 9 years and couldn't move out fast enough. Please do yourself a favor. ... more

Scott Gallagher answered:
august, you might want to think on that awhile longer. just because it looks like it's for sale doesn't mean it is. the address you gave doesn't exist on the assessor9;s page. so, if it is a foreclure like the other agent implied then it may have never have been for sale to begin with. BE WARY of websites that claim to know that kind of junk. if it isn't on the association site, then it isn't for sale. that's why THAT SITE is linked to my association's site. houses owned by banks just drift in the void forever, and no one ever saves money tring to buy them at me and i'll find you something nearby. scott 219-588-6787 ... more
