Zillow Advice: Home Buying - where can i get a home loan with a 580 credit score? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/where-can-i-get-a-home-loan-with-a-580-credit-score/527545/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Luckily, your credit score ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/where-can-i-get-a-home-loan-with-a-580-credit-score/527545/ Luckily, your credit score are right at the bare minimum for most lenders. The lowest credit scores lenders like myself are able to do, is a score of 580. Since your scores are in that range, then you should be good to go when it comes to credit. Also there are other financial factors that would need to be analyzed include your income, expenses, assets, liabilities, debt, employment, down payment, as well as credit scores. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a lender such as myself to see if you can get started on financing a new home.&nbsp;If you have any further questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me.<br/><br/>Good Luck!

A fully detailed examination of your financial situation would help and assist you a bit more<br/><br/>Hope that helped a little bit, feel free to reach out and good luck..!!
