No, you can't. Some lenders might offer you a loan with a 580 credit score, but interest rates are based on a lender's risk. The higher the risk to the lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. Get your credit score up to about 640 before you try to buy a home.

Steve Quintana answered:
Whether the credit for closing costs shows up depends on how the credit is applied:

1. If the credit is applied to the buyers costs of closing the sales price will likely remain the same and thus the credit will not be reflected in the sales price, which in turn may be recorded in the county records.

2. If the credit is applied as a price reduction to the sales price the price recorded at the county will be lower than the originally agreed sales price of the home.

Some lenders prefer to see seller credits handled as a price reduction rather than as a credit on the closing statement. A credit on the closing statement can raise questions about seller kick-backs and that can slow down or derail a loan.

I was in a similar house recently and there is no hall access to that space. Is it through a door in the 2nd front bedroom? If so, is this a true 4 bedroom house?

The best way is to look in an area where there is public water and sewer and avoid areas that are only serviced by wells and septyic systems. You can make that part of your search .
