Whether you're planing to buy your first home or want to get pre-approved for a mortgage. A perfect credit score is not needed for an FHA loan approval.

In fact, even if you have had credit problems, such as a bankruptcy, it's easier for you to qualify for an FHA loan than a for a conventional loan. Credit scores down to 500 are accepted if there are compensating factors that offset the credit risk.
