    You might try contacting Scott Davis on the yahoo credit repair board.

    jeepers, I sure am posting a lot about them lately. Just coincidence, I don't work for them or anything. LOL

    FHA Max is 97%. With your scores I would try Household Bank. They will give you 100% financing w/ a blended score of 580+ (they blend scores by taking an average of your 2 highest.) If you can't get this program directly through them go to a local broker and tell them to get approved with Decision One (A Household Company.) Hope this helps.

    They may have a local office in your area. In addition, some of your local mortgage brokers may carry the Household product.

    Ford Credit will usually take anyone on, but the rate will be something 11% adjustable, and you may have to put quite a bit of money down.

    Kristy, Thanx for the tip , the 11% doesn't bother me however tha adjustable part is a little scary. Does anyone have any thing not so chancey?

    I would call a builder if I were you. They can work miracles. They can do FHA with no money with something called sweat equity. If you are a first time homebuyer it's worth a shot. I hope you're not self-employed. Bad credit and self-employed don't mix in the mortgage business.

    I don't honestly see how you'll be able to do this by August 1. There's just not enough time between now and then. I refinanced my house last summer. It took 4 full weeks to get everything done and ready to close, and that was with me pushing for speed all the way and no hiccups.

    Try calling country wide mortgage and tell them that you want the ameridream down payment grant (3%) and a 30-year fha loan (there's your 100% financing). My husband and I just did that (made the offer on June 26th and moved in yesterday).

    Countrywide offers both fixed fha (fixed rate) and arm (adjustable rate mortgages) We got a arm at 5.5% interest.

    You don't want 100% financing (or 103%) as they charge you a higher rate of interest.

    BTW my husbands "ficos" were 600 equifax, 679 TU and 664 Experian--I have no "fico" as I have no American credit history.
