Michelle I don't have a solution for you but what I tell you may help you find a lender.
With the whole banking mess that has crashed the economy and the banks needing bailout money and thus getting it , a side issue has arisen. The banks that are getting monetary help have been asked to open their books and show they operate. The Goverment has been trying to stimulate the economy by freeing up the banks balance sheets and buying mortgage backed securities, thus lowering rates. The banks/investors don't want to be scrutinized thus they have made it harder to obtain a loan.

The banks and/or investors have raised the minimum credit score to 620. These are for loans from the major players, they want to be able to securitize them (sell to FNMA or Wall Street).

For you: You need to find a local bank or credit union that does FHA/VA financing who will portfolio the loan (keep on their books). They shouldn't have a minimun Fico Score requirement, just that you are credit worthy and have enough recurring income. Remember FHA/VA is not putting the money up fo the home, the bank is. All FHA/VA is doing is guarantiing a portion of the loan in case you default. Good luck

Hi Michelle;

For me to see if we can help I need you to give me a call at 719-265-9203. We could possibly do a CHFA loan which require a minimum credit score of 580. Since you have been repairing your credit my lender could possibly see if we can get this 580 requirement by managing your credit profile. Please give me a call as soon as possible. We could adjust your current score with the credit you have repaired and may get to the 580 CHFA requirement.

The person I would refer you to is a gentleman named Bobby White with Countrywide. I persoanlly prefer to work directly with lenders, not brokers because it eliminates the middle-man which allows me to get staright & absolute answers. Bobby is as honest & ethical as they come, give him a call at (719) 570-8913. Bobby will be able to tell you if you can qualify for a no or low downpayment product as well as advise you to the risks of such.

Good luck.
