The usual desired score is 620 and above, however you should meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for given your score, they may also be able to help you boost your score after looking at your credit report.

Good answer from Scott - follow his advice and your score could go up.

If you hustle, you'll be able to obtain a light interest rate and take advantage of super low prices.

I used my VA loan for the third time just last year and it is a tremendous benefit to have.
