There's no minimum score needed. If you've saved enough cash, you don't need credit at all.

Hello Taria:

A question I would ask is, how you plan to finance the purchase. You may not be aware, but in few circumstances can you get a loan under $50,000. When you do find it, the rates are usually pretty steep, unless it's offered through Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

Are you planning to pay cash? For homes meeting your criteria above for the price you're willing to pay, there is usually much work involved. You can have repair costs rolled into the loan amount which would boost the loan amount.

Let's talk privately, so I can get more information to guide you through the process to acquire your home..

Yes underwriting does look at value of home plus 100's of other concerns. If you have a 549 credit score you most likely can't qualify for a loan unless you have high down payment
