FHA minimum score is about 550! Some lenders have special programs that are based on your gross income such as the Community Development Program, VHDA which is the Virginia Housing Development 100% financing program, etc. All depends on what is available in KY. Contact a reputable mortgage company/broker to get the best programs available to you and your particular circumstances.

Besides the price of the home and your income, there are other facters that determine being approved for a mortgage loan...with credit score being one of them. I spoke with a morgtage lender in Lexington this morning that said that they are likely to get a 640 to go through. I would recommend sitting down with a lender in your area for a pre-qualification. That would best answer your question.

Best of luck!

There are other factors besides credit there that determine eligibilty, therefore do visit with any qualified loan officer; he/she will best advise--be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously.
