Bad Credit but have competitive salary, First time home buyer, and willing to down 90%Hi Zillow community,I am a first time home buyer and looking to purchase a home next year. Thing is, I do have bad credit (due to past issues) but now have recovered in terms of solid employment (high annual salary for the past 2-3 years with W2's) and willing to down at least 30% on a home or condo (or basically $80K max). Will my bad credit still hamper my chances in purchasing a home/condo in the Stamford Connecticut area? Would it be better for me to look at rent-to-own options if there is one or are these mostly scams? Your advise is much appreciated.Best,SteveDecember 12 2011 - Stamford00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
