His credit score is 617, and we have been talking to a man who says he can help raise our credit in about 3 months. Is there any way we can buy a house with his credit score now, or do rent to own while we work on his credit? Also, the house we&nbsp;are interested in is a short sale.<br \><br \>5 replies Fri, 16 May 2014 06:28:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-my-fiance-and-I-buy-a-house-with-his-credit-score-of-617/541006/ 2014-05-16T06:28:00Z any rent to own in monett area only http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/any-rent-to-own-in-monett-area-only/526930/ 1 reply Mon, 03 Feb 2014 01:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/any-rent-to-own-in-monett-area-only/526930/ 2014-02-03T01:53:00Z Buying a home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buying-a-home/488975/ <p>Hi, My husband and I are needing to relocate into a larger home here at the beginning of June or July. We have never bought a home and we know our credit is not great. But we need something that we can afford and that is large enough for our family. The estimated mortgages on some of the&nbsp;homes have made us wonder if it is even possible for us to buy a home or not. Is there anyone who is willing to help us find out if it is a possibility and show us some homes that would work for us if it is? We'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks</p><br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 22 Apr 2013 14:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buying-a-home/488975/ 2013-04-22T14:32:00Z What can I do to get more (or better) quotes for my loan request ZR-PQKLQJS? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-can-I-do-to-get-more-or-better-quotes-for-my-loan-request-ZR-PQKLQJS/477791/ what about a FHA loan, will that help with my loan...
