we find out what programs are good for your situation.
Attach a check made payable to "Mortgage Market Inc." for $35.00 person. This is for your TRI-MERGE Residential Mortgage Credit Report (RMCR) required by all lending institutions.
If you can't afford $35 for a zero down home loan you probably can't afford a house. I get people great deals on loans. Why should I penalize the people who are serious about saving money by making them pay for everyone else's credit reports. I'm not trying to be a jerk. I just don't think it's fair to charge someone an additional $175 for 4 other people's inquiries that aren't as serious.
Bad credit will not necessarily disqualify you for a home grant.
