Absolutely confer with a Lender. In reading your question it says you have no credit cards or payments. This actually may negatively affect your FICO score(light credit). Recent payoffs or installment loans that were paid, credit cards paid on time is a very positive influence on your credit score!

You may want to try Wells Fargo. I just read that they have lowered their credit score minimum for FHA loans to 500. According to the article scores of 500 to 579 require a 10% down payment, scores of 580 to 599 require a 5% down payment and scores above 600 can still make the minimum 3.5% down payment. With your score of 607 you would not have to put your full $6000 down.

I do have a very nice home listed not much higher than the home you've found for $63,000 and would encourage you to definitely shop around before you make your final purchase decision. My home is in the area of 57th & Carmen on the northside...$79,900 is the asking price...its move in ready.

A good Mortgage Broker is the best way to go for you. If they can not qualify you they can tell you what you need to do to get qualified within 6 months. There are still some great loan programs out there back by uncle sam. Not sure how long that will last so act now.

Yes, it sounds like you can do it! Just call a good loan officer and start the process.

There are many lenders that will be able to get you a loan with a 600 score. With your history of work and small amount of debt, you should qualify. What you need to do is contact a few lenders and see what you qualify for. If you need the mnames of some lenders, please feel free to contact me any time.
