The bad credit mortgage is often called a non-prime mortgage or alternative lending and is offered to Cave-In-Rock homebuyers with low credit ratings. Due to the low credit rating, conventional mortgages are not offered because the lender sees this as the homebuyer having a larger-than-average risk of not following through with the terms of the loan. Lenders often charge higher interest rates on non-prime mortgages in order to compensate for the higher loan default risk that they are taking.

If you have a poor credit score a larger down payment may be required. In most cases gift funds are allowed.

Candidates For Cave-In-Rock Bad Credit Mortgages

Some people with poor credit profiles or a small down payment may have trouble borrowing from conventional lenders. One alternative to consider is obtaining a Federal Housing Administration loan or a non prime mortgage. These loans have liberal underwriting requirements which allow people to purchase a home with a poor credit score and as little as a 3% down-payment. Non Prime and FHA borrowers can qualify with credit scores between 500 and 620. Veterans may want to explore low-cost VA loan opportunities.

Most borrowers use a non prime mortgage with the home buyer planning on refinancing at some point into a more appealing loan with a lower rate. However if the homeowner still has outstanding credit issues or the mortgage market tightens up then they might not be able to refinance. The higher rate can cause a prohibitively higher monthly payment, & an inability to refinance can mean a loss of home ownership.

The below items are the general guidelines that can be used as a rough rule of thumb when determining whether a consumer may be a candidate for a non prime, FHA or VA loan:

  • 1 Day out of Foreclosure, Bankruptcy, short sale, deed-in-lieu.
  • Loans up to $1 million
  • Credit scores down to 500
  • Up to 100% LTV
  • DTI up to 50% considered
  • Owner-occupied, 2nd homes, and investment properties
  • Non-warrantable condos considered
  • Jumbo loans down to 500 score
  • 5/1 ARM or 8 – 30-year fixed
  • No pre-payment penalty for owner-occ and 2nd homes
  • No active tradelines OK with housing history
  • SFRs, townhomes, condos, 2-4 units
  • Seller concessions to 6% (2% for investment)

At Smart Mortgage Centers creditworthiness is not determined exclusively by credit scores. A couple of missing credit card payments does not mean that a consumer is doomed to receive double-digit interest rates. The only way to know where one stands is to apply for the loan and speak to a Smart Mortgage Centers professional.
