    At least a 500 but with thoses scores they would look at the 612 (mid score). Go to argentmortgage.com and look at their rate sheets to see what rate a 612 will get you probably an 7.75. The next tier is at 620 then 640 so on. So look at those reports and dispute inaccurate information make payments on time and by October it should be higher.

    with that credit score you would be able to get a mortgage but with a higher rate than average. they would look at 612 for you middle score. another is that your credit score would have went up if you did not miss or be late on your payments. But to get your best rate is to raise your credit score to at least 608-720. you could do that by having older accounts that are in good standing. also if you keep your credit balance to at least 33% of the high limit or lower that will higher you credit score. for example if you high credit limit is 5000 the best way is to have not more 1650 owed on that account. Also keep your open accounts with a balance to a minimum of three account.

    The best thing for you to do at this point is to get a free mortgage quote to see if and how much you qualify for. You may not need a cosigner at all. At least then you will know what your obstacles are. Good Luck.

    Those scores are certainly not “A” credit. Good luck!
