Yes it is.. There are lenders that require a 580-600 credit score for FHA loans. I've had some clients get approved by The Lenders Network with low scores so I'd check with them first. Good luck! ... more

Ignore Amelia's advice since she is not familiar with NYC real estate. I'm a retired real estate broker in Westchester. Your issue is you won't qualify for a condo. Condo prices are much higher than $230,000. + you will have to pay a monthly HOA fee (building maintenance fee) + property taxes. HOA fees average $500./month.
If your budget is $230,000., you will qualify for a coop, but you will need to pay a monthly maintenance fee which includes your property taxes.
What I strongly suggest is instead of contacting a mortgage lender, you need to cut your expenses, pay off any outstanding debt and save as much money as possible. Since you don't plan to move for another 1.5 years, you have plenty of time to build up your savings and increase your credit score. You will find the home buying process so much easier in 1.5 years if you do as I suggest.

Rosemarie Tucker answered:
If you have less than a desirable credit score due to bad credit or very little credit history, getting a co-signer may help you get into your apartment. A co-signer is a guarantor and the guarantor is secondarily liable on an obligation. You could ask a family member or close friend, with good credit, who’s willing to sign their name on your lease. He or she will assume financial and legal responsibility for your apartment if you default on rent payments ... more

Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams. Find more from the FTC HERE.

The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.

I don't have a lot of trust in some of these agencies and it is not so simple to just do it yourself.

You can begin by paying all bills on time, consider a secured credit card--depending on your situation, if you have a loan officer, consider asking him/her the question--he/she can best advise as it relates specifically to you. ... more
