There's Hope For Every Home Buyer With Less Than Perfect Credit

Have you been turned down by other mortgage lenders in St. Louis, St. Charles or anywhere in Missouri for a mortgage because of less than perfect credit? Are you concerned because you know you have had credit issues in the past or you just aren't sure of your credit situation?

We have all heard it is getting harder and harder to get a new home loan, especially if your credit scores are less than perfect. Currently, FHA allows for less than perfect credit score mortgage approvals, but many lenders have their own overlays to what FHA wants.

Today if you don't have a middle credit score higher than 640 many lenders are just saying NO to any home buyer unless you can put down more than 20% on your new home purchase.

Your 580 Credit Score or Higher May Get You a New Home!

FHA, is one of the best mortgages available to St. Louis, St. Charles and Missouri first time home buyers, home buyers with little money saved, less than perfect credit home buyers, or under employed home buyers.

FHA, has a mortgage program available to home buyers that have a minimum middle credit score of 580 or higher! But, most lenders ignore this program's guidelines to overlay even more restrictions on you making it harder to get your new home.

Do you have credit scores between 580 and 599 and want to buy a new home? If you can meet most of these guidelines you should contact me because it is HIGHLY POSSIBLE that very soon you will be purchasing a new home:
