Step-by-Step Guide for Buying a Home With Low Credit

Step One: Get Your Free Credit Report

Review all of the information provided. Is your social security number accurate? Are your addresses up to date? Which debts and transactions are causing you to lose points?

Step Two: Do What You Can To Raise Your Score

Unless you’re in a rush to buy a home immediately, take some time to improve your credit score as much as you can. Five factors determine your score.

Step Three: Talk to a Professional

The best person to go to is a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-approved housing counselor. The government trains these counselors, specifically the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Step Four: Enroll in a Homebuyers Workshop

If you can get into a course locally, it should be free. You can also do it online at your own pace. However, there will probably be a charge for this. Once the course is complete, you’ll get a certificate you can use when you apply for financing.
