[I know its an old reference but hey its a great example : ) ]<br/>Email me and I can recommend you to an awesome loan officer who works with a buyer just like you to qualify for buying their first home. We have many times worked with a buyer up to a year or more to help them repair their credit and be able to buy a home. We never give up until you have realized your dream of home ownership.

I would recommend to sit down with a loan officer to tailor a plan that specifically works for you. Each Bank and or Mortgage company can offer you different things. Defiantly will want to shop around.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Also if you are worried about having bad credit you can always look for land contracts. Seller financing is a good option if a traditional bank can not approve you.&nbsp;<br/><br/>I am a local Realtor in the Saginaw area and would be more that happy to assist you in finding a home and the right option for you.<br/><br/> Mon, 17 Feb 2014 01:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-a-first-time-home-buyer-i-dont-have-good-credit-or-none-how-can-i-get-financed/528101/ 2014-02-17T01:32:00Z I would highly recommend ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-a-first-time-home-buyer-i-dont-have-good-credit-or-none-how-can-i-get-financed/528101/ I would highly recommend you contact a reputable mortgage rep in your area and they will be able to answer your questions and also offer advice on what to do to boost your credit as well as suggest special programs, etc that may be beneficial to you. &nbsp;Good Luck! &nbsp; Wed, 12 Feb 2014 16:37:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-a-first-time-home-buyer-i-dont-have-good-credit-or-none-how-can-i-get-financed/528101/ 2014-02-12T16:37:00Z Jmartison78-Good Evening.I ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-a-first-time-home-buyer-i-dont-have-good-credit-or-none-how-can-i-get-financed/528101/ Jmartison78-<br/><br/>Good Evening.<br/><br/>I would probably start with speaking with local (to you) lender, perhaps a bank, credit union, etc. you have done business with. Then you can go to "Find a Pro" here on Zillow, (top task bar), enter in the township or zip code you're interested in buying a home in. Select a couple of the agents who work/know that area and contact them. Ask them for a buyer guide, book, kit, etc. I hope that helps.<br/><br/>Have a BEAUTIFUL night.<br/><br/>-Shawn Wed, 12 Feb 2014 06:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-a-first-time-home-buyer-i-dont-have-good-credit-or-none-how-can-i-get-financed/528101/ 2014-02-12T06:32:00Z May I suggest you meet with ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-a-first-time-home-buyer-i-dont-have-good-credit-or-none-how-can-i-get-financed/528101/ May I suggest you meet with a quality lender in your area to determine the best steps for you to take to improve or establish good strong credit so you can quit riding the "rental roller coaster". &nbsp;You may also want to talk to a REALTOR in your area that your friends or family recommend (post on facebook asking for recommendations for real estate agents). &nbsp;That agent can get you in contact with a lender too.
