The down payment on the mortgage would depend upon the type of loan that you have.

The VA loan and the USDA loan have no down payment. The FHA loan down payment can be as low as 3.5%.

Be aware that any home you buy will also have closing costs. Closing costs are normally 2% - 5% of the price of the home.

I would be happy to answer any home buying questions that you have.

FHA really isn't credit score driven, it's the Banks and Lenders that set those score requirements. There are a few lenders that go down to 580 with FHA, I personally have closed on several homes with clients around and under 600. I recommend all my clients that have credit issues to check with The Lenders Network, check them out. If anyone can get you approved they can! ... more

Hi Toni,

Sure, there are some real possibilities for mortgages. Most government insured loans want to see an applicant have a credit score of 620 or better, but I have seen several lenders fund an FHA mortgage for buyers with credit scores as low as 580. It depends on your credit history specifically, so you will need to discuss that history with the lender but feel free to contact:

Victorian Financial/Cory Ward: 412-677-3160/888-333-0191
Dollar Bank/Terrie Stefanko: 412-925-6507/800-344-5626
Fifth Third Bank/Jeff Woodward: 412-373-6155
US Mortgage/Marcy Demek: 724-861-4121/866-331-1700

There are many lenders available, but my experiences with all of the above has been positive when helping customers with resolving their issues with obtaining a mortgage. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your home purchase.

Best Regards,
