I am looking to get a mortgage with a co-applicant. My credit score is above 720 and the co applicant is 550. Any one know of any lenders?

You'll have to a find a co applicant with a score of at least 640, even if all of the other factors (income, assets, down payment) are in order.

Dear Guyer

Most lenders will not give this situation much attention. However, while in the Navy I was a Financial Consular. This situation was common with Navy couples. Buy looking at both credit scores and a couple of months time two people working together can get that lower score up without damage to the upper score. Of course there is no fees for me assisting my clients in this way.

If interested, Call me at 412-498-7868

Best of Luck, Benny Smith

Get that co applicant off of the loan- No one will look at a 550- lowest possible score that I have ever seen get a loan was a 580 w 20% down.. and that was FHA. your 720 score is great but tho co borrower isnt doing you any favors-

You would have the mortgage and the co applicant will be a contributary to the expenses of the partnership. There are mortgage bankers willing to help but it is always dependent on other factors to simply credit score. Please get in touch if you wish to discuss further. Many thanks!

An FHA with 10% down might work with a credit score at 550. But if you can go it without the lower score it would be much better unless you need the co-buyer for income.
