Re: A mortgage loan with low scores?

First Guarantee Mortgage Corp is a national company that does loan as low as 580.  The interest is higher since they are taking more risk however if you really want a mortgage it is worth contacting them.  I do not know of any others that go below this but maybe others do and will post.

Re: A mortgage loan with low scores?

Thank you all for posting this!  We have been repairing our credit since July 2011 and have raised it from 496 to 550's so far.  Hubby will be getting medically retired from the Army by this summer and we will be relocating to FL.  I'm an LPN but will finish my RN by March/April so I will stay in the same field of work when we move with an $11/per hour pay increase.  he will receive an Army/VA medical retirement check so not sure how that will affec us for getting mortgage by fall, but it's nice to know we have other lending options as our credit union and bank both requre 620-640 MINIMUM scores to even apply...will keep plugging away at our credit scores in order to continue to improve them! =) Hopefully by fall next year we can have a home for us and our three children!

Equifax: 470 ( Lender 7/11) 548 (USAA-7/10/13

Re: A mortgage loan with low scores?

Lovemybabiesx2 - You will get there.  Fall is about 9 months away and you are not so far away from the desired score minimum.  If you look at my signature you can see that I made significant progress in a little over a year and I had a judgment, state tax lien and defaulted student loans and medical collections but I was dedicated to getting a house so I worked hard to pay off debt and maintain on time payments.

 

I have fate that you will reach your goal of a new home in 2012.
