Hello isw123, you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. If you have credit issues, your credit scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Hello ISW123,

FHA is a good option. 3.5% down and the seller can credit you some of your closing costs. Try Dana Dukelow at Prospect Mortgage. He is amazing! (310) 461-1893.

Good Afternoon,

Since I am in Northern California, I will pass along the website and name of an excellent person down south, Scott Schang or any of his loan officers. He has a great website that is helpful, especially for teachers. But, if you are not a teacher do not worry - they can help you with finding special programs to assist you. I have posted their website below:

Call Eli Weinberger at Bank of America, 310-927-2467 - Tell him I sent you. He has worked with a lot of my first-time home buyers, including those getting FHA loans. He can help see if he can get you pre-approved for a loan.

Contact me too about the opportunities in the San Fernando Valley market - I am very experienced in that area and can help you find a great property and navigate the buying process. Give me a call at 310-482-0173 or email schulmanrd@yahoo.com. (and remember, using a buyers agent doesn't cost you a penny - the fees are paid for by the seller)

Look forward to speaking with you,

Richard Schulman
