Credit and Down Payment

Because the Federal Government insures every FHA loan, lenders can take a greater risk and accept lower credit score than with a conventional mortgage. With a credit score of 580 or higher, you can buy a house for as little as 3.5% down. This is a very attractive offer to many people who may be just starting their careers or are living in a high cost of living area and cannot save up a full 20% down payment.

FHA loans are a little more lenient in your debt to income ratio than a conventional loan, allowing your mortgage, loans, credit card payments and other debts to be up to 50% of your monthly income.
