First Time Home Buyers get an FHA loan with a 580 credit score

First time home buyers who are worried their credit might not be good enough to qualify for a home loan, we have a solution.

Most lenders will tell you that in order to get an FHA loan, you need a credit score of at least 620 to 640. That’s not the FHA’s rule. That’s the lender’s rule. In the mortgage business that’s referred to as an “overlay”. Overlays vary from lender to lender, so shop around and find a lender whose overlays match your credit profile.
