It sounds like your an excellent candidate for a loan. I have an excellent lender that I work with who I would be happy to pass along your information to and have him reach out to you. If for any reason you are unable to qualify for a mortgage at this time he will be able to help you with exactly what to do to raise your credit score and get you qualified in the near future.

Please give me a call or shoot me an email and I would be happy to help.

Good afternoon cmyersnola,

We see many credit reports with low credit scores (anything less than 620), and often many scores in the 500's. This is BAD credit. If you are one of the folks affected by this terrible economy, you have a low credit score and you have a dream of buying a home, here's some simple advice for you.

It is unlikely you could be approved for mortgage financing with that credit score at this time.

Beware of any mortgage professionals promising you an approval with such a low score. Wait on buying a home. I recommend you take the time to resolve your credit issues.

First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.

Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.

I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.

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

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.

Hello Deyaco5846,
Thank you for your question.
I just talked to William De La Torre on 856-562-2286 from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and he told me that with an income of $2000 a month you will be able to qualify between $80,000 to $100,000 depending on your debt. Feel free to call him.
There are several pieces of information that will determine your purchasing power. He or other loan officer will be the best qualified to let you know how much and what programs you may be qualified for.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Good luck,

First you need to determine what your credit score is. if you have a credit score of 580 or above we can offer you a FHA mortgage with 3.50% down. If your credit score is less than 580 and greater than 530 we can offier you a FHA loan with 10% down.

if you would like to be qualified for a purchase money mortgage, i would be happy to speak to you.

Hi John.

I regularly work with lenders who specialize in credit challenges. Call me....856-575-1818.

Here are a few testimonials from recent First-time buyers:

"It was such a pleasure working with Rob! Being first time home buyers, my girlfriend and I were a bit intimidated by the whole process. Rob definitely made sure that all of our questions were answered and all of our worries attended to. He's a patient, easy to talk to, and dedicated individual who kept the house hunting process fun and exciting. Can't wait to work with him again with any future real estate business we may have." - MC

"Robert is an expert when it comes to homes in South Jersey. He is also very generous with his time and knowledge and will not stop until you find the house that fits your wants and needs. He stuck with me for 6 months until I found my home and now I just moved in! Thanks Rob!" - RH

"Finding our home wasn't easy. We had many pitfalls during our quest for the perfect house. He was always there and when we wanted to give up, he always has an encouraging word. Anything we needed or had questions about if he could help us he did. I would definitely recommend him." SP

Call me, 856-575-1818.
