Unfortunately, you need to have decent credit, and a good debt to income ratio (among other things) in order to qualify for a mortgage. I suggest you sit down with a lender who can review all of your financial info and see what you need to do in order to qualify.

Lenders want to see someone with a good track record for paying their debts. Bad credit usually means that you fell behind on your bills, and haven't been paying them on time, or at all.

I would start by working on your credit. If you have 12K in cash, maybe you need to pay down, or pay off your debts first before going into debt even more. Make sense?

Hi Glen, 716 is a good score, but scores are not the only factor used to determine whether or not you will be approved for financing. Length of continous employment, debt-to-income ratio's, and other variables come into play here. Hope this helps. If you have any futher questions, feel free to contact me directly 501-246-0861. Thanks. ... more
