Finding Acceptance with Bad Credit

by Molly
(Pasco, WA, USA)

When my husband and I started looking for a place to call our own, he had no credit established, and mine was bad. We had a nice lump of cash to put down, and so I didn't think it was going to be hard to find someone who would work with us.

I was wrong, very wrong. Everyone I contacted would give me a denial within 48 hours. I was so bummed.

We were sick of renting, and I was told that it could take up to 7 years before we would be credit worthy of buying a home. I hated that idea and decided to figure something else out. I had heard a little about owner carried contracts and decided to research a bit more.

I found a few people willing to do a contract within my area and any one of them was more than happy to work with our current situation. We found the perfect 3 Bedroom house with horse property, and I had to have it.

We did end up having to pay more than we normally would for a downpayment, but I am just happy that someone was willing to work with us.
