The Myth: You need great credit to obtain a mortgage

The Fact: FALSE, while having a certain credit score impacts your home loan options, there are ways to obtain a mortgage with a low credit score. Such as:

  • FHA Loan: Most First time buyers should consider this option because it allows lenders to issue these loans with a lower credit score. In some cases, FHA will approve loans down to a 500 credit score
  • VA Loan: credit score can be as low as 580
  • Conventional Loan: minimum credit must be at least 620
