Can I still get a mortgage?

My fiance recently started a new job (one week ago) in a field different from his previous job.  His FICO score is 653.  My FICO score is not as good (low 600 range); however, I have been at my job for 5 1/2 years.  Is it possible to still get approved for a mortgage with his high score and my job longevity?

Re: Can I still get a mortgage?

If both jobs were career oriented then it should be OK, i.e. like if he was a mechanic and now is a police officer.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
