Many lenders (as do us) require a minimum 640 credit score, with some lenders (very few) requiring a 620. With a 653, there is a good chance you could qualify. Keep in mind that qualifying for a mortgage has other factors - other than just credit score - but having an exceptable credit score is the first step. I'm located in Hernando (right off the square), so if you would like to see what you could qualify for, then please give me a call or send me an email with any questions you may have. You can contact me at 662-429-5100 Ext. 105. ... more

When you say "bad credit" - what's the issue? Past Due Accounts, charge-offs, bad debt - or just no credit?

There are many ways to get credit re-established. An option may be for you to look for Seller-Financing or Lease with Option.

Contact a local REALTOR - they will be able to assist.

Best of luck,
