With the right LTV ANYONE can get a mortgage.
 
620 is the threshhold for prime.

You need to have a mid score of 500 before an underwriter will even approve the mortgage application. Also what is on your credit report by the way of baddies??

generally, 500 is the mark. though i have seen some sub 500 loans go thru
 
if your last 2yrs credit history is clean, then fha is a great program for low scores.
 
what are your scores? can you document all of your income?

Baddies currently on my record. Payments late with truck payments over the last 2 years 7 times. Other than that no baddies. My score is 507. Other baddies are utilities, medical bills, foreclosure, reposession. I can verify income.

I heard a subprime lender say that he would approve anyone with any credit score and no income documentation as long as he had 30% downpayment.  With 20% downpayment, he'd approve just about anyone else.  Truth is, anything below 600 is now going to require a large downpayment and usually means you can only get an ARM, not a fixed rate.
