Do not forget to look for HUD homes. I know of 2 homes in Hanover that would be perfect for flipping. They need work!!! But priced to sell. I can send you the listings if you like.
One is a bi level home listed 105,000 needs lots of work. repaired value>>about 189,000.
However no way would I pay the full $105,000 for the home. Maybe 75,000

The other that comes to mind needs someone to hook it up to public sewage and do some painting and cleaning . Listed cheap.
There are PLENTY of these around York county. Let me know if you want me to send a list of them right to you.So you can review.

It is hard to fully grasp this question because I do not know the complete specifics of your situation but I will try to help. If you are thinking of applying for a loan for a house, credit score is not the only factor that is looked at, although it is important. Other factors such as income, debt, employment, expenses, liabilities, assets, along with credit score are all looked at to see if you can qualify for a loan. I am not sure what you consider "poor credit" but lenders like myself have been able to give people loans with scores as low as 580. I suggest you call a lender, like myself, so that we can try to help you out in your situation or at least point you in the right direction.

Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can!

Good Luck!

Hi Tria
You should not have a problem getting a mortgage with a mid score of 627. Contact a local lender so you know exactly what your options are. Best of luck to you.

There are a select few lenders willing to go down to a 600 score sometimes lower. I would recommend The Lenders Network they have helped several of my clients with lower scores get approved.

Good luck!

Was your contract contingent upon financing? If so did you apply for the financing in the specified time stated on the contract. Your answer is in your offer.

Trevor Curran answered:
Good afternoon Veronica,

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. 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.
