Kim P, Home Buyer in Lansing, MI

Credit Score = 500

Asked by Kim P, Lansing, MI Wed Jul 29, 2009

IS there any type of loan I can get with this score? Without having to pay too much per month?
I've been working on my credit, and know it will go up more in another year, but wanted to know if anyone had any advice or if there was anything I could do to get a mortgage now? THANKS! :)

you cannot get a mortgage loan with a score of 500. you should improve your credit score... For FHA loan min. score required is 620 and for conventional loans you need min. credit score above 650.

It appears your options are limited to spending considerable energy improving your credit score. Some buyers in similar situations are considering a lease purchase approach. Ask your agent for details on this inititive.

Good luck
