VA loans are not Credit Score driven, Robert. The requirements are much more lax than that of a traditional loan. If you want to speak with a VA specialilst, Visit us or give us a call.

I can't take you VA, but I can do it FHA with that score. VA requires a 620 score in most cases. Down payment would be 3.5%. Rate is slightly higher than normal (about 1%). Depending on the county you live in, there may be an assistance for the closing (down payment or closing costs). The lender is picky about the credit, so score may not take you to the finish line.

With a 580 the down payment would be steep at 20%, the good news I have software that reviews your credit report and can help you understand what you need to do to get to and past that magical 620 credit score so you can purchace with a VA 100% financing loan. Sometimes it is even just one or two items that are easly overcome and sometimes a little more complex. Also we are a VA Certified Lender we can get your COE and qualify you right on the VA website with very little effort and paperwork from you.

Hi Robert

For the majority of lenders today, you'll need a 620 or better credit score. Talk to a lender you trust thats experienced in credit restoration to determine what you will need to do to increase your score. Almost everything required you can do yourself, thereby avoiding the need and cost of a credit repair company.
