The best thing about this process is that most of these mortgage brokers wonít even pull your credit when you apply. That means that there is no risk to you for trying it out. Usually when you have started to work with a specific mortgage lender, that is when they will ask if they can pull your credit report. You may already know that multiple inquiries on your credit report can drop your credit score slightly, and if you have bad credit to begin with, you are going to want that score to be as high as possible.
Talk with many different mortgage loan brokers, if you can, have one mortgage loan broker pull your credit and then ask him/her what your credit score is. Then, go to all other lenders you want to apply with and tell them your situation, with your credit score, income and down payment information. Have them give you some estimates of what they can do before they ever pull your credit.
There are many things you can do to boost your credit score, but before you let your bad credit keep you from getting into a home, be persistent and make sure you have applied with or talked with as many different mortgage lenders or mortgage service companies as you can. If you can apply online, that is a fast, easy way to apply with many mortgage lenders and get responses quickly.
