Am I stupid…buying a house with bad credit question.?
I have been living in a house..lease purchase option for two years. I officially have 11000 down due to part of my rent going toward purchase. problem is..i havent been able to increase my credit score. I finally found someone to give me the load but heres the stipulation……
-house appraised for 181000.00
-with my down payment and owners paying closing costs my loan would only be for 153000.00
-adjustable mortgage rate
I searched and searched and that is the only place that will give me a loan with my 550 credit score. I have to buy this month or move.
Am i stupid for agreeing to such high interest and an AMR or would i be stupid for passing up a house that appraised for 181 and only getting loan for 153???
