You can qualify for a conventional mortgage loan with a 520 credit score in the Cook County.
You can also use alternative credit such as: gas, electricity, phone, cable bills, etc.

I have other important information that I want to share:
The waiting period to buy another house after foreclosure or short sale is three years.
The waiting period to buy another house after bankruptcy is one year.
This info. is for the Cook County Illinois.
Other questions? please feel free to call me.

We are good to go at a 600 score. Give me a call to see if you prequalify.

Hi there, we can go as low as 580 for some programs. Now just because a score is over 580 doesn't mean it's automatically doable as it depends on why the credit is at that range but it can be done. After talking about your situation we'll have a better idea if it's a viable route for you. Call 708-829-2537 and ask for Anthony.

Are you employed?
How much do you have available for down payment?
There may be some options but it may be wiser to spend the next few months clearing up an credit issues that you have and therefore put yourself in a better position of success down the road.

Prospect Mortgage and WIntrust has been able to lend with a 600 score in the past - but not sure if they still do.
