Damaged Credit – Can You Buy a Home?

Of course!  You’ll be glad to learn that you actually can buy a home with damaged credit. In fact, it’s quite common. To do so often requires a flexible seller who is willing to help finance part of your purchase price. You see, there are a lot of lenders who specialize in financing homes for folks with credit problems.  To reduce their risk, they may simply reduce the amount they loan. This means the buyer must have a big down payment or the seller must be willing to finance the difference on a second mortgage. Getting you a loan is generally not a problem, however finding a flexible seller who doesn’t need all their cash immediately, may be more difficult. Ask us about rent-to-own.
