Is it possible to have a low credit score and still buy a home? We are planning to buy a home in the next year or two. The goal is to pay off all credit cards and everything on the credit report. The only loan we will still have is a car loan 13k. Our scores are low so it will be hard to get up to high 500's or 600's. We will attempt to have 6-7k down. Household income around 70k with one payment of $400 for car loan. Is this journey possible to get a home?
Thank you!

I am a 75 year old retiree. I have 1600 a month net income from social security and a small pension. I just got a credit score, because I recently took out a secured credit card. No FICO shows yet on experian, but creditkarma shows transunion 664 and equifax 670. I have no other credit cards or financing of any kind. The only alternative credit line I have would be my electric bill. All other bills are in my daughters name. I don't even have things like a gym membership or netflix account, so the only alternative credit line period is my electric bill. I have no debts on my credit history.

Does it sound like I can qualify, for either a FHA or USDA loan?

We filed a chapter 7, lost a home in foreclosure but maintained a home we could afford. It's been 4.5 years and we were approved for an FHA loan based on our re established credit, stable jobs, good income and no debts at all. Lender says FHA is all we can do and that PMI is required. Ok we find it to be worth it, but no one can tell me how long we will have to pay the PMI? When can we get it removed, and will we have to refi to remove it? If that is true how long?

My credit is not great-like 650, but my fiance's credit is stellar-over 800. He has very little debt and I have a lot. We are wondering if it's better for him to apply for a loan and get the house before we get married, or do we have the option of having only one spouse apply after we are married? We live in MN.
