During the financial disruptions and housing downturn of 2006 through 2010, mortgages for homes went through a great change. Congress passed legislation to provide for greater monitoring of lending practices and many mortgage products were either eliminated or changed. Mortgages became harder to obtain and lending practices became much more stringent. Lenders opted to take the most rigorous standards for lending for fear of government oversight intervention.
Often markets overact in situations, especially if under government oversight. However, lending practices are beginning to loosen and become more common sense again. Some mortgages are available for those with a FICO score less than 600. If you have a FICO score of 600 or greater, you should be able to obtain a mortgage at market rates. Approval times are getting shorter and more people are qualifying for mortgages. Even if you have had a foreclosure or bankruptcy, you may very well qualify for a mortgage again at market rates.
