Question:

With a 640 credit score will I find a nice lower credit score loan?

Answer:

Well, 640 credit score is less than you would like to have but you'll be able to get a decent loan with this credit score. Perhaps, your 640 score will get you a little higher rate, but still you should be able to qualify for a conventional. You could even get 100% financing or put just 3% down with FHA and get better rates.

Also, a 640 score may not be all that matters. The lender will like to know if your income is stable and whether you have other assets. Also, even if you get a bad credit home loan now, making the payments and building equity in the house will help you improve your 640 credit score and this bad credit score loan may very well be your last one.

As a whole, you have much better chances with a 640 credit score now than you would some years ago. With all these new mortgage products, and legal credit repair services you can either get your score improved in just several months, or just find the appropriate loan product.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
