    Not anymore… dont you watch the news? The days of risky credit lending are over. We were in the process of buying a home (our scores were in the high 500’s) and the company changed their policies a week before we expected to close!!!! If you have a large down payment or are looking to buy a with low payments versus your income you might have a slight chance. Too many people are foreclosing so they dont want to take that risk anymore.

    i know of one company that mey still do them they financed a freind and her credit was 548
    she got financed without raising her score
    the lender will also refund the fee for raising your score if you finance thru them.
    I have heard alot about them recently and have heard nothing but good things if it is possible to finance you they will tell you.

    If you cannot document your income or otherwise need a subprime loan, yes you can get financing still, but only with a minimum of 10-20% cash down payment or equity. Wilmington finance, Aurora home loans and Liberty American are the only power hitters (as it were) still standing. You are also looking at rates starting at 9%.

    If your loan vs. value (aka LTV) is higher, and you can document your income you really have only one option.

    FHA or Federal housing administration loans will allow as little as 5% equity for a cash out refinance, and 3% for a no cash out refi. FHA can be combined with seller contributions to do 100% financing for a purchase money loan. They are forgiving with low credit scores but need high income vs. debt ratios.

    Another thing you should look into is raising your credit to at least 580 and looking into MyCommunity, which is a Fannie/Freddie based program that does no cash out refinance and purchase to 100% loan to value.

    Good luck….

    I would highly suggest that you work on solving your credit problem 1st .. first off debts etc …save up and buy a home next year or two ..

    don’t worry the problem with the subprime will be affecting the real estate market for another 3 to four years

    very doubtful without a massive down payment…and even then it will be hard.
