  • FHA loan requires new borrowers with less than a 580 credit score will be required to put down at least 10%
  • FHA minimum credit score is 500

In the old days, FHA did not have a minimum credit score requirement.

FHA requires a minimum down payment of 3.50% for borrowers with a minimum credit score of 580. FHA requires a minimum down-payment of 10.0% for borrowers with credit scores below 580.

FHA loans have been helping people become homeowners since 1934. The FHA insures the loan, so you can get a better deal.

* Low down-payments

* Low closing costs

* Easy credit qualifying

FHA loans are continuing to support the nation's housing market recovery.

FHA does not require collection accounts to be paid off as a condition of mortgage approval. However, FHA does recognize that collection efforts by the creditor for unpaid collections could affect the borrower’s ability to repay the mortgage.

  • If evidence of a payment arrangement is not available, the lender must calculate the monthly payment using 5% of the outstanding balance of each collection, and include the monthly payment in the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio.
