Not from a traditional mortgage company, try a finance company, the interest rate is going to give you a rush. Good luck,

I would recommend meeting with a Loan Officer to find out your options and obtain a pre-approval. If you would like me to provide you with the preferred lenders at our office feel free to contact me. Also, this price point will be difficult as investors are buying many of them with cash deals. You can search MLS listing for free on my website!

You will NOT be getting a low interest rate loan and will pay points. Get that score up first if you want to get these sub 4% loans

There are 3 essential Las Vegas Investing Strategies which primarily depend on your current location. The other factor determining your strategy would be your financing. You can’t get a loan to rehab a property. http://lvpropertysearch.com/las-vegas-investment-homes/las-v…

Homes under $40k? Probably not that can be financed. Perhaps a condo. Keep in mind that interest rates are higher when you finance a condo and will be even higher with low FICO score. Best to talk to a loan officer and go over the scenarios that are best for you. Great question and thank you for posting on Trulia! Raina Musser

Yes. Congratulations, it seems you have done your homework. 620 score, 20% down is the base at this time with most lenders, however, in todays market, most lenders will not lend on less than a 60-75,000 loan amount. As prices in the Las Vegas market are at rock bottom, you should think of buying the nicest home you can. A 130,000 loan with normal taxes and expenses is around $950 per month.

Do you realize you will be paying a higher interest rate and points because of your low score. Better to get your score higher and ge a better loan.

Good moning,
It may be possible to get a loan based on the information you provided. However, most lenders want loan below $50,000. My lender may be able to get private money for you if you are willing to increase your amount and put a little more money down. Otherwise it may be too soon after foreclosure to obtain traditional financing. Give me a call and we can discuss the details
