Low interest rates are encouraging many people to take the first step toward home ownership. Those who have never purchased a home may be unaware of how extensive the home buying process may become. Lenders request a variety of documents in order to verify employment, income, credit, and so forth.

Sadly, many individuals with hopes of purchasing their first home are unable to do so because they do not meet bank qualifications. Reasons for a mortgage denial may include poor credit, recent bankruptcy, foreclosure, and self-employment. Individuals who are denied a mortgage may become discouraged. However, there are several alternatives to a conventional bank mortgage. Many lending institutions require a 3% down payment, acceptable credit history, and low debt to income ratio. Fortunately, there are private investors and lenders who are willingly to offer non-conventional mortgages to those who are not ideal candidates for banks.

Creative financing a home mortgage includes a variety of options such as assuming a mortgage, buying a home with no money down, seller financing, and lease-options. Anyone can purchase a home using one of these methods regardless of credit or income. These methods make financing a home quick and easy. In some cases, the new home buyer may even save money.
