Andy Matejka answered:
FHA guidelines allow for approval with a 580 middle score, but long term, you truly will benefit by taking the 3-6 months time to increase your score to at least a 640 which is going to allow you to shop around more in order to find more lenders to help you.

Talk with a lender that can analyze your credit and guide you through the process.

They will also help you determine if there are any other factors needing attention prior to approval.

You can certainly try to get a loan to cover the losses. As long as the funds in hand will cover the liens and closing expenses, no one will care how you found the funds to make it happen. ... more

For a VA loan the min. credit score is 600. However, with the USDA loan there is no min.
Credit Score with Century 21 Mortgage at 910 554 4876, however, call for requirements. Other lenders in Jacksonville have a 620 min. credit score for USDA and VA loans. Please email me with any other questions at chaun128
at or for a list of homes that qualify for USDA. Feel free to call me any time.
I work 7 days a week.

Laura Snyder answered:
I would consider beginning to look and familiarize yourself with the area pretty soon, that way you have a better idea of what you truly want/need. Starting now would give you the opportunity to build in a new community should you decide to go that route, which definitely has its benefits. It also wouldn't hurt to go ahead and speak to a loan officer about a mortgage to make sure everything is in order. Should you need to fix anything on your credit, you still have time.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, I am a real estate agent who has lived in this area my entire life, so I am familiar with both established and new communities as well as school districts, etc.

Good luck!

Christina Asbury answered:
That depends... I'm assuming someone wants to 'close' on a loan, meaning to buy the house that is in someone elses name. The way you've asked the question is actually the way real estate sales work. Seller A and B are on the deed and at closing the new Buyer will sign a new deed. I'd need more info to answer the question further.. Feel free to call/email me directly to discuss. ... more
