A company many of my clients have used is The Lenders Network, they have lenders that can work with difficult situations like high debt-to-income ratios or low credit score. See if they can help you find a lender that can help.

Good Luck!

Kropflipeter25 answered: this for investment le to help. We do business loans for our clients that are currently in business or wanting to get started in business. Real Estate investors are in business therefore they are able to obtain a business loan. Depending on your goals one program we offer may benefit you. We offer a no document business loan, no collateral on the property as it is a business loan and you are able to finance 100% or more. Many of our investors finance the repair/upgrade costs into the loan. The loan is based completely on your credit. You must have a 620 or above to apply. Some of the factors we consider is the length of your credit history, how much available credit, how many recent accounts have been opened etc. We need to prove your ability to repay the loan based on your personal credit. You are welcome to contact me anytime with questions.

Mariyaluci answered:
A construction loan is not a simple process, and should be left to experienced loan officers/lenders doing business in state where property is located that specializes in new home construction loans. It is common for custom builders to have bank source(s) to do construction loans for homes they build. If yours does not he should know of a source, but you can typically find a local/regional bank that has a Construction loan dept. Some may do a One Time closing which is for construction and the permanent loan or you may need to find a source also for the permanent loan once construction is finished as many banks only do the construction loan piece.
