    It depends on the loan program.

    For conventional, in order to get the best rate you want 740+. You can still qualify with under a 680 score but if you are going to need PMI you will need 680+. Most people do not know that the guidelines for conventional loans over 80% are being dictated by the private mortgage insurance companies.

    On USDA, FHA and VA you need 620+ for most lenders but I have 1 lender that will go down to 530 on FHA and VA.

    different banks have diff min credit score requirements for the approval of home loans and mortgages. but by following tips u have improve credit score...

    Tip to increase your credit score: The fastest and most effective way to raise a score quickly to qualify for low interest home equity loans for bad credit is to calculate the card balance to limit ratio. If this ratio is above 20%, the borrower can pay down the balances, thus raising the score up to 30 points in as little as 30 days. If the borrower doesn't have the funds to pay down the balance, they should consider asking friends and family for assistance. This will enable the borrower to receive a low interest rate home equity loan for bad credit with which to first pay off the family member or friend, and enable the borrower to utilize their home equity loans for bad credit funds however they choose.

    When applying for a home loan your credit report will be reviewed and you may be required to provide a number of other details, including: Employment and income records, Tax Returns for the last few years List of assets, List of liabilities and what you owe, Your budget showing monthly living expenses so that you can demonstrate an ability to pay.

    With this information you and your lender will be able to determine the kind of home loan and size of the right mortgage for you. In some cases, you can obtain a pre-approval or pre-qualified certificate, which shows how much you can borrow so that you can then shop for homes in an appropriate price range.

    Credit scores (usually) range from 340 to 850. The higher your score, the less risk a lender believes you will be. As your score climbs, the interest rate you are offered will probably decline.

    Borrowers with a credit score over 700 are typically offered more financing options and better interest rates, but don't be discouraged if your scores are lower, because there's a mortgage product for nearly everyone.

    You could negotiate a work out plan and make the initial deposit, this would delay any judgment and leave the lender as Sr. thus the risk level has been diminished... Now if you default on your forbearance that is on you... I'm surprised that you have a 674, you must be taking out a small second or raking in $145k combined (don't answer that).

    Above 675.

    FHA can go as low as 620. I have read that some even can still get a loan in the high 500s but it is rare.
