From my experience with 203k loans, the best advice is to use a lender that offers assistance via third party with 203k processing.
This shortens the closing time by weeks. Try http://www.cfs-mortgage.com/203k for more information.

Most Lenders will require a 640 score these days, however there are still a few Lenders that can fund FHA loans with a 580 credit score. We have access to these Lenders and will refer you to a reputable Lender that can help you with low credit score. We have helped hundreds of borrowers with scores under 620 get approved for financing. Visit our site if you would like us to find a Lender that an help you get pre approved.
Thank you for your Questions. This question is for a lender who will need to review all the income
history to fully evaluate. From my experience 620 is the cut off for a mortgage but it may have a bit to do with down payment as well.
Please feel free to contact us for mortgage info and showings. We will need to a letter of committment and buyers agreement.
