Hi Jason!
You are wise to want to clear up your issues to get your scores higher. That will only improve the loan product you're able to secure. The better YOUR credit picture looks, the better terms, better interest rate the better monthly payment for you.

I have lenders you might want to be in touch with to find out what your options are.

Curious why you are looking to buy a home here in MN?? We have a really strong economy and our real estate market is rebounding more robustly than many other metro areas around the country, so it makes sense.

Let me know how I can help~
Good luck~

One of the trends that's emerging in the mortgage market is that while loan documentation is still extensive and income and asset scrutiny is still painstaking, credit score requirements are starting to loosen up so long as there are compensating factors in the loan file. Compensating factors might be a low debt to income ratio, excess reserves (savings after the down payment) and things like that. In these cases, it's not unlikely that an exception would be made to take a score down to 620.

For FHA loans (and I think you'd want to go FHA here), if the aggregate amount of collections is over 2000 dollars, here is what is prescribed for handling it in underwriting:

• At the time of or prior to closing, payment in full of the collection account (verification of acceptable source of funds required).
• The borrower makes payment arrangements with the creditor. If the borrower has entered into a payment arrangement with the creditor, a credit report or letter from the creditor verifying the monthly payment is required. The monthly payment must be included in the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio.
• If evidence of a payment arrangement is not available, the lender must calculate the monthly payment using 5% of the outstanding balance of each collection, and include the monthly payment in the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio.

Considering FHA minimum is 640 then you should have zero issues getting there by the time you purchase a home. I work the whole 55119 zip code and surrounding areas, so if you need any help relocating to Minnesota let me know!

Not sure what your comments mean? call or email me to discuss further. Technically you can buy now (I have lenders that can do 580), but you will get better terms at 640
