Credit

FHA announced a set of policy changes to strengthen the FHA. The changes announced are the latest in a series of changes enacted in order to better position the FHA to manage its risk while continuing to support the nation’s housing market recovery.

The FHA has taken the following step:

  • Update the combination of FICO scores and down payments for new borrowers
  • New borrowers will now be required to have a minimum FICO score of 580 to qualify for FHA's 3.5% down payment program
  • New borrowers with less than a 580 FICO score will be required to put down at least 10%
  • Minimum credit score for an FHA loan is 500. 

Today’s historically low interest rates make now the perfect time to purchase a new home or refinance.

One of the most popular types of mortgages is the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. This loan is usually the easiest to qualify for and provides the maximum interest deduction at tax time. The interest rate stays the same over the life of the loan which provides unchanging low monthly payments.
