Ok, short but sweet. Me and my wife are in Manual underwritting with wellsfargo. our over all combined income is just under $80,000/yr. with $16,000 of that being from VA compensation ill recieve for the rest of my life. we both work full time, with more then 2 years on the job. my wifes score is 625, and mine is 611. all of our recent credit, (2 cars, 3 credit cards) is up to date, current, and always paid on time. but we do have a few old medical collections from almost 3 years ago. i have about 20 hard inquires on my credit from with i bought my truck in December 2012. wells fargo vows they do loans with score as low as 600. we have a contract on a house for 156,450. seller paying closing. and we are using the Va loan through wells. no assests. debt to income is 44%, (daycare is about 7% of that) no new collections, or charge offs in last 2 years.

Wells Fargo is terrible. Their service is sub par and they take forever! Find a different lender ASAP

We can get loans done all the way down to 600 for FHA lending. IN some rare cases, 580.

Remember some recommendations aren't always they best. Take time to interview other lenders and to do your due diligence.

I believe that Wells will come through and unfortuantely you are in a situation where it would be difficult to switch lenders, Not many will work with the current credit scores. Perhaps the score have increased since you started the process?
How long have you been waiting?

You've put all your eggs in one basket; counting on Wells.
Why don't you start PLAN B; another lender that you can use, at least as a comparrison.
Oh, and thanks for serving!
How about contacting Navy Federal Credit Union, (they serve all 4 services).
Get your GFE from Wells, and get one from NFCU and compare.

Good luck and may God bless
