There are other factors besides credit that determine mortgage qualification, therefore do visit with any loan officer; for an FHA loan and decent rate, 640. In the meantime, do dispute any negatives, pay all bills on time, pay down debt, keep credit cards below 50%, etc.

Anna is right, 620-640 FICO score seems to be about the minimum to get a decent rate without paying up front costs for a mortgage. Clik on the link below and you can get a nice description from a local mortgage broker about what credit scores mean.
