To buy a home you will need a minimum credit score of 500.

Borrowers with credit score above 580 require a 3.5% down payment. The funds can be a gift from a family member and a 6% seller's concession is allowed. Often, 12 months of rental history is required for credit score below 620.

If you have credit scores below 580 new FHA changes require a 10% down payment. Funds can be the borrower's own funds or a gift from a family member. FHA allows up to a six percent seller concession for closing cost. Many times 3 to 6 months reserves will be required.

To refinance your mortgage you need a minimum credit score of 500.

Borrowers with a credit score above 580 can refinance up to a 97.5% loan-to-value on a rate and term refinance. And up to 85% cash out refinance with a credit score above 580.

If you have credit score below 580 new FHA changes require a maximum loan-to-value of 90% for a rate and term refinance. And up to 75% cash out refinance with credit score below 580.

Most lenders require a minimum credit score of 640 for a 2016 FHA loan.

Whether you're planing to buy your first home, refinance, lower your monthly payments, buy a second home, consolidate debt or 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.
