Can a person get a mortgage loan with a credit score of 650?

Can a person get a mortgage loan with a credit score of 650? If so where? I have had credit trouble in the past. I am now trying to rebuild. I am finding it hard to get a mortgage loan or a major credit card. I have read stories about people getting loans with credit scores lower than mine.

The credit scores are based as follows: 

740 and higher = excellent
661 to 739 = good
601 to 660 = fair
501 to 600 = poor
500 or lower = bad

The score of 650 would be a fair score and this might not be as bad as what you think. Credit scores over the past 10 years have fallen and the approval of loans for fair credit score are becoming easier. You will note that 33 percent of closed loans in spring 2014 were for borrowers with a credit score below 700, compared with 27 percent a year earlier.

Carrington Mortgage Services as note that “In 2005, 1 out of every 7 loans were approved for borrowers who had a credit score under 630. By 2013, 1 out of every 500 borrowers had a credit score that low.” If you are looking to finance with a low credit score then try Churchill Mortgage or Carrington Mortgage Services.

  1. you’d have to search the internet or ask a financial advisor. I’m sure you would be able to find a bank to give you a loan, but I think the interest rate will be so high it would be financial suicide. take a couple years, pay everything on time (that’s all your utilities too, they report late payments to the credit companies) try to up your score. show responsibility by having a savings account, even if you can only put $ 20 a month in – do it every month. good luck to you.

  2. Yes, you can get a loan with score of 650, but that’s not the only consideration. Your income, details regarding your employment, and how expensive of home you want all factor in to you becoming approved. The most important thing is finding someone you trust, and any broker can find a loan for you, but remeber your credit score is only one factor.

  3. I got one with a score of 568, it all depends on your income and if you have repos judgments or bankruptcy’s in your past. Keep in mind too that the higher your score the lower the interest will be on your loan. I can’t refer you to any one place. What I did was called around and applied at any that were willing to talk to me, lol. Finally one said ok and the rest is history, lol. Right now I am trying to refi and am going thru Citibank / Citifinancial. I already had an account thru them though (a personal loan). I know that’s not much help, but it is possible! BTW, do you have any current/ open credit card accounts? For some reason it helps….. When I began trying to rebuild my history I got an Orchard Bank card. Their fees are high but they cater to people who are starting over. If you keep the card in good standing and don’t over do it that will help. After a year I got rid of that one and now have one from Citibank….. Good luck! There’s nothing quite like buying your first home!

  4. Delta Financial focuses on lending to individuals who generally do not satisfy the conventional mortgage guidelines established by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. The Company makes loans to these borrowers primarily for debt consolidation, refinancing, education and home improvement, where cash-out/debt consolidation consists of approximately 85 percent of Delta’s business.

  5. A score of 650, alone, should not keep anyone from getting a mortgage. It’s just below the average for Americans. Could there be other things in your financial situation that are keeping you from a loan? Has it been explained to you that your credit score was the only factor in turning you down? Be careful applying at numerous places for a mortgage, as unfortunately multiple loan applications adversely affect your score as well. Be sure your income is sufficient for the loan amount you’re seeking.

    A mortgage broker is often a great place to start for a loan, as they often work with multiple lenders, and usually have a few that specialize in what they’d consider a higher-risk loan. Is it crucial that you purchase right away? A year spent working on your credit score would be a great investment that would pay off for years in being able to purchase a house without a ridiculous interest rate.

    If you choose to work on your credit first, just order a copy of your credit report (if you haven’t already). Most credit reporting agencies give a detailed account of what’s considered positive and negative in your history. Fix whatever you can, explain what you can’t and add comments to the file. Fixing or disputing items on your credit report actually hurts your credit score for a little while until it’s resolved, but it pays off in the long run. Be sure not to undertake any work on your credit report like that unless you’re sure you won’t be applying for a loan again for a few months. If you can wait to buy a home, I’d say repairing your credit is a great route. Beware credit repair agencies, they do more harm than good. Trying to rebuild by taking on a mortgage at a high interest rate may not be a wise idea at this time. But you know your situation best.

  6. You can get a mortgage and a credit card. The credit card you can get at Wells Fargo Financial. This is different than Wells Fargo Bank but it is a subsidiary. Wells Fargo also does mortgage loans for people with that kind of credit score.

  7. you can get if from well fargo:

    Fixed mortgage rates use the current interest rate throughout the duration of the mortgage. If you want to pay a fixed amount every month, opt for fixed mortgage rates. Adjustable-rate mortgages vary according to economic scenario and hence can rise or fall. This means your monthly payments will vary as the interest rates change.

    If you do not want to pay more when the interest rates rise and get the benefits of lower interest rates, choose an adjustable rate mortgage with the conversion option. This allows you to convert your adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed rate mortgage, by paying additional fees


    650 is an average credit score and if they didnt give mortgages to people with scores like that they wouldnt be giving out a whole lot of mortgages.

    HOWEVER, lets not pretend that credit score is the only factor that goes into a mortgage approval. Alot of people think just because they have great credit or bad credit they can or can not get a mortgage. Credit score plays a role.. but your income, down payment and other debts will play a role as well. Im sure there are people out there will credit scores over 700 who cant get approved because they dont make enough money. Likewise there are people who have scores around 550 who get approved easily because they have alot of income and down payment.

  10. Right now a score near 600 is about as low as lenders will go… the question here is how much money are you willing to spend? Just taking a few months to try and repair your score to boost it even by 5 or 10 points can make a huge difference. Have you tried to clean up mistakes in your report, or are there simple things you can do now to fix it?
