You can buy one with a 580 credit score but you shouldn't. Interest rates and the cost of financing are based on the lender's risk. The higher the risk to the lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. Wait until your scores are around 640 before you try to buy a home for far better pricing.

Alysse Musgrave answered:
A reputable lender can give you exact figures based on your qualifications, but generally speaking assume $400-400 for an inspection, 0-3.5% for your downpayment, and roughly 3-4% of the sales price for all other expenses.

Amelia Robinette answered:
you're entering into a contract for an enormous amount of money - spend the couple hundred bucks and have an attorney go over the contract terms so you know your obligations and the buyers obligations.

consulting an agent is best to understand the value of your condo, if you're looking to purchase another property, you could probably get someone to help w/the sale contracts gratis or at a steep discount if you're also going to have the represent you on your next purchase.

best of luck!

Brian Nguyen answered:
There are lenders like myself that are able to do loans with only ITIN numbers. Although, this type of loan usually requires a decent sized down payment. So if you have a down payment available, then this type of loan may be a good option for you. Either way, the best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!
