Lenders Approving FHA with 620 (under 640)?

[ Edited ]

There has been chatter on the board about some lenders dropping FHA minimum score requirements from 640 to 620 in the last few months, but does anyone know which lenders are now accepting down to 620? Any nationwide lenders that operate in Ohio?

 

Thanks!

Feb 2012 Goal Scores: EQ 620 EX 620 TR 620 (or just the middle to be 620!!)

FHA is 580

 

lenders add their own guidelines and some will go that low.

 

rates might vary. and underwriting will be tougher.

 

if you have time to get the scores up a bit you will have a smother transaction

Provided everything goes well tomorrow morning and I get keys in my hand, I'm going to have a very long post regarding closing through Wells Fargo with a 621 fico posted tomorrow.  Stay tuned.
