    Co-borrower has similar liability with that of main borrower thus the credit score factor will come in.

    Nope, they check everything if you try to add somone. Because if you can’t pay they need to make sure that the co-signer has a good history.

    No. cosinger on any loan will effect the loan for the most part. depending on who has the better score you can get a better loan with the best as the primary. Though if your a first time home buyer most states have programs you may want to look into that will save you a pretty penny and get ya a nice rate. I went through one in Michigan and had to go to a stupid class for 1 hour four times but ended up with a 180k house and a 4.5% fixed rate and my credit score at that time was only in the 630’s

    What the point of adding a co-borrower? Because your income level is so low you won’t qualify without one? If that’s the case, then find a house that’s more in your price range or wait until you have more money in savings and a better job.
