    In a word. NO. In this market, you are very hard pressed to find any lender who would consider a 570 credit score for a mortgage, unless you elect to pay interest rates which are horribly high.

    Look into FHA financing. You won’t qualify for 100% with a 570, (no matter what anyone here tells you) so FHA 97% might be your best bet. Find a FHA approved broker to go over your options.

    Edit:
    Acermill is wrong. You can qualify for FHA regardless of your credit score and rates are currently under 6%. Don’t disqualify yourself based on what people not in the business say. See a licensed broker and investigate it for yourself.

    if you pay 260 dollars off on the 300$ card and 400$ off on the 500 dollar card, you will see your score go up significantly. You will kill yourself in interest rates with a score that low. In fact you could pay those cards off probably 100 times over with what you will lose in interest on your house for having such a low score.

    Your chances improve greatly if you live without credit cards . You will realize cash in hand is powerful if you don’t have a hole in your bucket.

    Not in this market. Get your credit cards under control and try again in 6-12 months after you have saved up some money. Like 3-5 thousand at an absolute min.

    As another poster indicated, the FHA 203b loan would most likely accomodate you.

    The program is not credit score driven, allows for between 97.15~97.75% financing (depending on where the property is), allows for seller concessions (to assist you with closing costs), cash reserves not required, can be used to finance a variety of property types, funds for closing can be gifted or granted, liberal debt to income ratios allowed, non-owner occupied co-borrowers are allowed (i.e. your parents can assist you with qualifying without being a resident of the property) to name a few.

    You could get a mortgage with a 570 credit score, but the interest rate will be double digit. I don’t understand why your score is that low if you pay everything on time.
