My credit is bad. I have 20k to go down on a 30k home. Is it possible to get a loan for the remainder?

Generally speaking, $10,000 will be below most lenders' minimum loan amount. Perhaps you could ask the owner to "carry" a loan for that small amount?

I do not see why that would be a problem at all, you can just get a personal loan for the 10k. Talk to a company I use, they have hundreds of Banks and lenders they use that can probably help you. The Lenders Network is the place to start, just fill out an app and they will help you out.

Hi Kay,

I responded to one of your previous posts regarding the same topic already, but haven't heard from you. We can lend down to 10K. Please call or email so we can discuss.

I'm impressed I wasn't aware of any local lenders that financed so low.

Hi Kay,

Unfortunately, most convensional lender wont lend less than 45k. I would recommend you to contact a private lender. They will able to help you with the down payment you are putting down.

Many normal lenders have a lower limit around $35 or $40k for the loan. Some private lenders will do small loans like your $10k balance.

Some sellers might offer you seller financing with so much down payment.

Your problem is going to be finding a home in that range. Preston Hollow is a bit more expensive than $30k. Only some townhouses on the west side are down in that range and they have $200/month dues. Most single family homes in Preston Hollow are in the $300-999k range, with some in the $250-300 range.

We can help you. We're a private money lender and have a NO DOC loan program that's not credit score based. We require 35% down and don't care about the condition of the home, so long as it appraises equal to the purchase price on the contract. Please give me a call or send me an email and we can discuss your situation and next steps.
