What would Sacto's average make to YOU?
The Bank will look at YOUR score;
they are not grading on the curve!

Besides; this would fall under PERSONAL INFORMATION and I serious doubt that anyone would have it!
Would you like your score broadcast over the net?

FHA’s TOTAL Scorecard has minimum thresholds, even if you have a decent credit score you must still meet the other requirements, something not discussed much by loan officers. You will need at least one account that reports to a credit bureau as a normal credit line, that needs a 12 month payment history. A total of 3 accounts are required but the other two could be what is called alternate credit meaning they do not normally report to a credit bureau. Examples of alt credit would be rent, utilities, insurance, stuff that is not a debt, but just an obligation. Hope this is helpful, good luck.

You can get an FHA loan but not with 3.5% downpayment. It will be either 5 or 10% down depending on your credit at the time of purchase.

Sounds like you have your dream job lined up and a new home on the horizons.

You have options for getting a loan with many banks and also increasing your credit score over the next three months..Simple easy steps to take too.

I would suggest you work with a local lender that you can meet face to face and review your wants and needs.

Please call or email.
I am happy to provide you with several choices for completing your home purchase.

PS. I just found the perfect house for a client last weekend that had asked this very question last summer.
It does work...and they found the house they had in mind...

Happy 2012!

YES. A short sale is considered a type of foreclosure and will negatively impact your credit score. However, there are benefits to a short sale over a foreclosure, namely you avoid the foreclosure process and get out from under the mortgage. ... more
