There are programs that do allow for low credit scores or bad credit but keep in mind it's not just credit score it's also about credit history.

I'm tired of people trying to bash this we buy homes people. I can't sell my house as is because my village won't let me list it with a real estate agent. It's hogwash that you don't have to fix your house up when using an agent. I dare someone to get my house sold without the village hitting me with a fine or lien because I want to list my house as is. Some real estate people are the nicest and others are shady characters like knowing a water issue but lying about it. If your house needs serious repairs sell to we buy homes people ... more
