Many first time home buyers believe you still need a 20% down payment before you can get approved for a mortgage. While that used to be true a few decades ago, that’s no longer the case these days. Many lenders will have no problem giving you a mortgage with a down payment of as little as 5 percent — or just 3.5 percent for a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan (if you qualify) and some other government-insured programs.
If your credit score has taken a nosedive, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t purchase a home. You may need to put down a larger down payment or get a federally insured loan, but it is possible. You can also try to explain your credit history to a lender, letting them know that you have been dealing with late medical bills or hefty student loans.
