Best to talk to a lender or two about your situation. You'll probably be able to get a loan but not the best rate.

I'm a local realtor and I'd be happy to connect you with local lenders that I typically work with. They have always been very helpful to my clients and I'm sure they'll help you to. Let me know if you are interested. ... more

Your score is fine, however a lender would also have to consider your income and debt to income ratio. I have lenders that can get you approved with a 580 credit score or better.

You can get one preapproval then ask for a comparison GFE from a couple of more loan officers. Just let them know you are preapproved(and credit score) and shopping.

Pay attention to the fees in the 800s section of the GFE. The rest are not controlled by the loan officer. ... more
