You can do so at <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp">Annual Credit Report</a>. Ask around for a recommendation from friends and family for a trusted lender. If you are working with an agent, or know any, ask them for a lender&nbsp;recommendation. Once you have spoken to a mortgage professional you will know better where you actually stand. <br/><br/>If you find that you will have to build credit first, you can find excellent advice at <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.myfico.com/Member_Home.aspx">MyFico.</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;<br/><br/>Getting a mortgage is more than just your credit scores. If you have been on your job a long time, if your debt to income ratio is good, if your rental history is good....all of these items are factors in whether or not you can get a mortgage. And the only way to truly know where you stand is to have a good lender look at your file.

I have international clients bought their properties by financing. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Selda&nbsp;[Hotlink removed by Zillow moderator.
