Is it possible to get a 30 year mortgage with a 590 credit score?

I own a property in Chicago free and clear. I purchased the property 6 months ago, everything is remodeled and up to date. Is there any banks that will lend with that low of a credit score?

    Yes you can but you’ll probably pay a high interest rate and you won’t be able to borrow the full market price of the house. . Interest rate is how lenders discriminate between good credit risks and bad ones.

    good luck finding a bank that will touch you.

    Talk to a mortgage lender about an FHA loan. According to the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, a FICO credit score of 580 is the minimum acceptable score for FHA loans. See the Source(s) below to learn more about FHA loan requirements.
