All other agents are correct, lender for loans, need confirm you have ability purchase that home.

620 credit score + , 3.5% down payment, debt ratio, employment history, 2 years financial statements

THAT IS NORM, however I do not have required info. make any further detailed information.

Your buyers agent should be able review all with you.

RULE of thumb: Never purchase a home direct from a bank, builder, for sale by owner, listing agent UNLESS you have your OWN agent who represents you.

Yes you will definitely need a good credit score but im no sure that it has to be much higher than the standard FHA's 620. If you would like to call me @ 214-682-0598. I can connect you with a lender that does homepath and then we can look at the house and make sure its a good deal.

Homesteps is a FreddieMac program for realse of REOs. You really need a professional real estate agent to assit you with the process. Tehre are a lot of pros and cons on buying properties from a bank. It can be tricky.

A mortgage specailist also is needed to asnwer your questions about qualifying for a loan.
