If you have bad credit but you need to qualify for a mortgage loan, there are a few things you can do to make improvements – but they’re not necessarily quick fixes.

How to Improve Bad Credit to Get a Mortgage Loan

Whether you’re buying a home for sale in Tampa Bay or somewhere else (we’re a little partial to Tampa…), try these tips to boost your credit and qualify for better terms and interest rates.

#1: Talk to a lender that specializes in helping people with bad credit.

You may be able to qualify for special programs, particularly if you’re a first-time buyer. It never hurts to ask a lender’s opinion on building and repairing credit, either!

#2: Get a major credit card.

You may have to apply for a secured credit card at first (that’s when you give the creditor money to use as collateral in case you don’t pay your credit card bills). However, once you’ve established a good payment history, you may be able to apply for an unsecured credit card.

#3: Stick to your job.

When you have a regular wage or salary, and you’ve been with your employer for some time, lenders look at that favorably.

#4: Save at least 10% of a home’s purchase price for a down payment.

The more you can put down, the better. However, most lenders will want you to put down at least 10% if you’re working with bad credit.
