Current Score: EX649/EQ637/TU620
Goal Score: 750+ ALL 3 by December 2012

Re: Minimum score for VA Loan approval

Just wanted to confirm what others have posted here.  We recieved our pre-approval today and our LO wants me to be at 640 before we go into underwriting.  640 and up qualifies for a better rate.  I am currently 639 mid score so I should be good.
