Realize that they will always take the lowest of the applicants credit history into account. It may be a disadvantage to add someone.
You truly need to talk to a lender to see how to best proceed. They are very helpful in these types of situations and no obligation either. ... more

Amelia Robinette answered:
probably not - at least not at an interest rate that would be helpful.

work on your credit, when you're over 620ish you'll be eligible for better loan options. create a budget and stick to it, most households (even w/new babies, congrats BTW) can redirect about $12k/year to paying off debt or savings. i know it's expensive to live in DC and $95k may sound like a lot of money to a lot of people, but around here, it's livable, but doesn't allow for an extravagant lifestyle.

if you really buckle down, by the time your baby is walking you could be in great financial shape.

there are a few strategies here that might work for you

Hello Trina - that is a very interesting question to which you will get many different responses. The reality is one should look a little deeper at the delinquencies to see if there is a way to work around that issue. We have a variety of products that could work for a property like that as long as the loan is going to be owner occupied. If an investor loan, a larger down payment of say 25% would be required. Feel free to message me or call at 202.803.5505 to discuss your situation in more detail. I'm new on the social media sites however have been in the business for over 14 years specialty the last five years has been working with tricky condo projects! Good luck!

3.5% with, FHA for multi unit, you're also going to have to occupy one of those units. Too much cash flying around and chasing these deals, I know, I do several myself for, cash investors. Multi-family is one of the biggest selling sectors of residential/commercial RE. Stock market to high and volatile. Bond and money market have horrible returns. Investors are looking for return=IRR, so they've been going into multi-family for the last, two to three years. Institutional investors. Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett) have already purchased over, $40M, in residential and multi-family units. Just make sure your, LO understands, IRR, Cash flows and can calculate how your loan, fees, etc.. calculate into the overall deal, based on your your anticipated holding period. These are the real numbers, along with some other numbers you throw into the mix to get your total operating income/expenses and your ability to figure out your investment performance. Doing the loan, sometimes hard, sometimes easy. Just b/c the property appraises, banks ok's the loan, doesn't mean it's a good deal. You can easily get a loan on a crap performing property, so make sure you run them numbers, my dawg! Happy Halloween!! ... more

Hi Joyce,

IF your credit score is a 780 you should have no problem obtaining financing for your mortgage, if the 780 is your Vantage score then I would suggest contacting Brent Mendelson, he's helped some of my client with challenged credit obtain financing.

You can find his trulia page here:

He's a good guy and very responsive.

Best of luck to you!
