First Time Buyers With Credit IssuesMy fiance and I want to buy a house before we get married next October. We're aiming low...the area he lives in has some places we like for under $100,000. My credit isn't good (590) but I'm working to improve it. I also have a student loan that is in deferment. He filed bankruptcy last year but his credit score actually went up after. (610)...he is also working on fixing his credit. Will his bankruptcy derail us from getting a loan even though his credit score went up? We both make aprox. 36G a year and will have about $6000 for a down payment.
