I'd say you're in pretty good shape. A 620 middle FICO

is all you need for the best rates, and as long as you have

no baddies you should be ok.

 

A 150k mortgage on a 68k/yr salary is just over

2 times income, which is very conservative. Plus,

VA loans allow for a higher debt to income ratio

than FHA or conventional loans.

 

Last time I checked, 30yr VA loans are at 5.25% fixed

with 0 points. 15yr fixed is 4.75% with 0 points.

 

I'm sure one of the experts will chime in, but on the

surface it looks good. :smileyhappy:
