    There might be a sub-prime lender out there that will make you a loan if you are able to put up at least a 40%-50% or more down payment.

    There is no way that you will be able to get a loan with a government insured lender. You will have to seek a loan with some type of loan shark that might do you bodily harm if you don't pay. And pay at least double the normal percentage rate.

    You do know that mortgage loan officers do not make the final decision on mortgages - underwriters do. All a mortgage officer can do is give you a tentative approval based upon a preliminary review of your application. In all honesty, unless you can come up with at least a 20% down payment, there is probably very little chance that you can get approved for a mortgage with that credit score. A few years ago, you probably could have qualified for a sub-prime mortgage (credit score below 620), but these days, banks and lenders are not approving sub-prime mortgages without high deposits and lots of paperwork.

    Call around to mortgage brokers in your area, explain your situation and see if they know of any remaining sub-prime lenders. Be prepared to pay up around 5.5 to 6% interest if you can find a sub-prime lender.

    You're not going to get anywhere with any conventional lender. Underwriters won't even look at a 550 score applicant. You are at least 100 points below where you need to be to be considered for a mortgage loan. If you can find any remaining subprime lenders, you might get a shot, but expect to pay a ridiculous rate of interest if one approves you.
