Can a Muslim buy a house from a mortgage company?

I know there are rules and guidelines Muslim's have to follow when purchasing a home, is this one of them?

Sharia law makes charging interest on money loaned to another person illegal so they cannot buy a house from a mortgage company since they charge interest.

I don't see why not. If he or she has a good credit history and has a good job to back it up, there is no reason that a Muslim can't get a loan. I am not a Muslim but I have not heard anyone that did not get a loan because of any Muslim rules.
