Can You Get a Mortgage with Bad Credit?

Applying for a mortgage loan can become more difficult when your credit score becomes a hindrance. Banks and lending companies generally look for customers with good or excellent credit to minimize the risks. If you have bad credit, a mortgage lender may consider you as a “high risk” customer, and thus, decline your home loan application.

However, it is still possible to acquire home loan financing despite having bad credit. In this post, let’s talk about some points you can consider if you plan to obtain a mortgage loan.

FHA and VA Loans

A consumer can get an insured loan from the FHA (Federal Housing Administration) or the VA (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs). FHA insured loans are offered to consumers who belong to the low income bracket that they cannot afford to pay the standard down payment required by lenders. VA insured loans are available for military veterans.
