Credit Myth #7- Qualifying for a home loan without a credit score

After spending over 16 years in the mortgage lending industry I have identified seven myths that consumers commonly hold regarding their credit.  In this series of videos I am going to breakdown each myth and help you better understand how your credit scores are determined so that you can achieve a better outcome for your next loan application.

The seventh myth is that an applicant without a credit score cannot qualify for a mortgage.  Please watch this short video to learn the truth:

It is possible for people without a credit score to obtain a home loan.  They have to be able to demonstrate that they have made on-time payments for other recurring payments such as rent, utilities, insurance or other similar bills.  This is known as a “non-traditional credit reference”.  This approach may not be used for an application with a credit score that is too low to qualify.
