House appraises for $70K, buying it for $57K. Plan to lease/option it out at $650/month.
FICO score: 620
$45,600 (80%) in new financing.
Seller will hold a note for the other 20% (I DON’T have the cash for the down payment, doesn’t bank want me to have my own money?)
Interest-only payments at 10% for five years to seller, with balloon at end of five years for the $11,400.
This will be no-money-down for me, but will a bank do this for me with a credit score of only 620, and no assets to speak of?
