Can I buy a home using my VA loan with a poor credit score?I'm retired but have pretty good income working for my daughter's company. I would like to use my VA loan to purchase a new home. My credit score was pretty good last year then dropped significantly a few months ago. My score now is pretty low. Is there a chance that I would be approved for a loan? Should I pay off everything right now and then apply?
