Mathew-you have a lender that will do an FHA loan up to 99.5% with a 560 credit score?  I would love to know who it is...care to share?

Yes it is possible.

The last comment was correct in saying that most FHA lenders require a FICO score of 620. However, it IS possible to get FHA financing with low or no credit history (would need to establish non-traditional lines), and with a CLTV as high as 99.5% up to a loan amount of $729,000.

There are income levels you cannot exceed depending on where you live and your debt coverage cannot exceed 43%, but it is possible.

Very very tiny chance unless you are eligible for a VA loan.

Do you have enough saved up for a huge (as a percent of home value) down payment?   Say 50%?

This is the time to get a thorough understanding of why your credit score is so low, and make some changes to get it up to a respectable level.   FHA loans are available with a score of 620 to 640.  Conventional loans need it to be more in the 700s.    The lower the score (if it meets minimums), the higher your interest rates.
