HI Paul I am from the lending side. If you are Canadian without american credit you still qualify for a loan. There are various options for you. If you are residing in the states and working we can get the loan done with better terms, we do loans for those with no credit score. Please contact me to discuss.

Hey Gina, FHA loans are ideal because the down payment if only 3.5% of the purchase price. There is what is called "mortgage insurance" that is added to your payment for the life of the loan. I suggest you meet with an experienced FHA loan officer, if you need a referral or two, it would be my pleasure to refer you. Getting a mortgage is like just about anything else you are considering purchasing - shop around and try to get the best rate and lowest fees. Best of Luck.

It needs to be your primary residence and there are more guidelines to qualify. Just follow the other Realtors answers to contacting your lender if your planning on occupying the home. Good luck!

Gina, You need to meet with a loan specialist (Mortgage Broker/Bank, etc.) in order to determine your exact qualifications. If you contact a Realtor in your area for a recommendation. Most Realtors have built a good relationship with lenders that can "get the job done'. Best of luck! Jenn Smith

Gina, if you are still looking you can contact me and I would be happy to help you get qualified. In today's market with the high mortgage insurance on an FHA loan and the fact that the MI does not go away, it might make more sense to go with a conventional loan. It would be 5% down instead of 3.5% on the FHA loan but it makes more sense. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Simply spend 15 minutes with a licensed mortgage banker and he/she will advise you if you qualify and what offer price you are capable of. You will need 3.5% of verified funds of your own as Ernst money down and a credit score of 640 for starters. Feel free to give me a call. I can originate in all states.

Contact your local bank that you do business with first, they have your bank accounts and personal info already, they will slao run your credit for you and give you a current list of the programs you qualify for. They will also give you a work list of things they will need to start the process. Once you are qualified check an independant mortgage broker for better loan costs.

Start with your local lender where you have basic checking/savings and ask the question. Before you go, read up on the FHA program administered by HUD at HUD.gov. Make sure you have reviewed your credit reports carefully for accuracy as well. Go to FTC.gov and use keywords "free annual credit report" and follow the instructions to order your reports by phone. You need all 3.

Hi Gina. An FHA loan requires you to have a down payment of at least 3.5% of the purchase price. Your down payment can be all gift from a family member as long as its documented properly. Credit score of 640 is recommended but not required as we can go lower with compensating factors. The seller can contribute up to 6% of the sales price towards your closing costs. Contact me for more details or if you're seeking a no obligation Pre-approval.

When a borrower is getting pre-qualified for a home loan, the lender is looking for three specific things when reviewing an application. There is an expression for lenders the three C rule. 1. Credit - Credit is the starting point to determine what program and what interest rates you will be able to get. While FHA will allow scores lower or no scores than Conventional loans there are limitations. 2. Capacity - This means you can demonstrate the ability to repay the loan. How is this done? Job stability, low debt to income, verified income. 3. Collateral - This means what your down payment amount is going to be and the minimum value of the house based on the appraisal cannot be lower than the contract price. The minimum down is 3.5% with a 620 FICO score which can be a gift from a family member or savings. Talk with a mortgage professional to discuss your specific scenario and evaluate the best option for you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
