FHA Rates Florida

FHA minimum credit score is 500.

New FHA policy requires a minimum credit of 500 to buy a home or refinance. In the old days FHA did not require a minimum score. These changes went in to effect in 2010.

To buy a home or refinance you will need a minimum FICO score of 500.

Borrowers with scores above 580 require a 3.5% down payment. The funds can be a gift from a family member and up to 6% seller concession is allowed. 12 months of on time rental history or on time mortgage payment history will be required for scores below 640. If you do not have verifiable payment history 3 months of reserves will be required. Reserves must be the borrower's own funds.

If you have FICO scores below 580 new FHA changes require a 10% down payment. The funds can be a gift from a family member and up to 6% seller concession is allowed. 12 months of on time rental history or on time mortgage payment history will be required. If you do not have verifiable payment history 3 months of reserves will be required. Reserves must be the borrower's own funds.

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

Borrowers with a FICO 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 FICO score above 580.

If you have FICO 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 FICO score below 580.

Most lenders require a minimum FICO score of 640 for a 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 FICO 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. Scores down to 500 are accepted if there are compensating factors that offset the credit risk.
