What if I have bad credit?
If you feel you have bad credit, talk to your financial institution to discuss options that may be available if you are looking to buy a home. There are a lot of programs out there to help people with their credit and to help with buying a home. You may be asked to make a larger down payment, but your financial institution will be able to help answer any questions you have. Be prepared when getting ready to look for houses. Your Realtor® should know what you are pre-approved for so they can find you the right home in your budget. For more information, visit Trulia Money Matters.
