Nitty-Gritty Mortgage Woes
Library staff member Eric Deatherage provided the following annotated Web site suggestions for persons with poor credit who are in search of fiixed-rate mortgages:
VA home loan. Not credit score driven. Driven by credit history rather than credit score. Certificate of eligibility required; the site explains how to get this certificate. Zero down. Debt to income ratio must be between 30 and 40%.
FHA home loan. Fixed rate product. Requires 3% down, but there are local donation programs that will cover that amount. 43% debt to income, including home, needed.
Freddie Mac program. Zero down.
