If everything else is acceptable you shouldn't have a problem. We would encourage you to be in touch with a mortgage broker for their input.

Good luck,

A 687 FICO score is pretty decent for mortgage financing and can qualify you for most loan programs available today - so it is certainly possible but having your credit qualify is more than just a credit score, it is what is on your credit that may not be making it perfect.

What is bringing your score to a 687 level instead of like 750? Some reasons are better than others, such as high credit card balances are better than having late payments.

I have a couple minor debts in collection, because I overlooked them. I also have a broken lease that Has a balance of $3200.00. my son was nine years-old, and we lived in an apartment with rowdy college students as upstairs neighbors. The walls were very thin, and I couldn't explain what was going on in the room above his room, our room, and the spare bedroom. We went to management and nothing was taken care of, so we moved with 1.5 months remaining on the lease. We had owned our own home and hadn't rented since 1991, so we didn't know about tenants court and all of the other options we could have taken. My debt ratio is at 27%. I have an excellent reference from my current landlord, and our previous mortgage was paid off satisfactorily in 2007.

There are other qualifying criteria beyond the credit score, but a 687 would have on issue assuming everything else is okay

Hi, With the credit score, yes. As long as you don't have any other major stumbling blocks. You should really talk to a reputable mortgage professional about your loan options. On very popular option these days is the FHA loan. This loan helps those with less then perfect credit and allows you to put down 3.5%.

Yes you can, provided you have not done a short sale or a Reo
And hold a job, and have a reasonable Debt to income ratio after you take
On the mortgage.
