You could try http://www.naca.com (neighborhood assistance corporation of america). They are a non-profit organization that counsels potential homeowners and they can help you get a loan from a cooperating bank you would ordinarily not qualify for. The process is not as easy as going to the bank or mortgage broker directly. If you follow the program and agree to support naca there is a good chance they can help you.

Hi Sharon,

I would recommend you talk to a good mortgage banker. Many times people think they have 'not so good credit' when in fact it is fine. There are programs for first time home buyers like yourself that require only so so credit and a small down payment. At the very least you will know whether or not you qualify, how much you qualify for, and/or how to fix your credit so that you WILL qualify in a short time, and how much time that will take.

If you don't know a lender, find a good realtor and ask them, they will be happy to help you find someone. And, if they DO help you, repay the favor by letting them also help you find a home of your own.

Good Luck!
