Is there anyway to refinance in this market if you don't have the greatest credit?

We really want to take advantage of the low interest rates right now but we don't have the greatest credit, out interest rate right now is 9.64.

The short answer is Yes.

The long answers requires more information.

What is negatively affecting your credit score: Large past due medical bills, late mortgage payments; late credit card payments; collections; or tax liens/judgments?

What is the amount of your first mortgage and value of your property (best estimate). Are you current on your mortgage payment(s)?  Do you have a second, what amount?  Are you currently employed?

FHA use to be your best option for financing because it use to not be credit-score driven. However, because of the economy and market we are in most FHA lenders now require a 620 minimum middle credit score to qualify for FHA.
