VA Loans for credit score of 611???My husband is a currently serving as a Reservist in the Army. He would like to take advantage of his VA loan and purchase our first home. His current credit score is 611...Unfortunately, we can't seem to find a lender that would allow him to qualify for a VA loan unless his score is the minimum 620...yes, we know he is only 9 points away but is there ANY lender out there that would even consider his score>??? he has 2 credit lines with a local credit union and has NEVER, EVER missed a payment in 4 years (he has a motorcyle and a personal loan). Lastly, is there anyway we can boost his credit score 9 points in 30-90 day time span? We were told that we can pay down on his most recent personal loan that was originally 5,000 (currently 4379 outstanding) that it would give him the points he needs but I don't want to make this large payment (1500 at 500 a month for the next 3 months) and find out it did little to his credit score. We NEED help...any advice or even recommendations to lenders would be greatly appreciated. We reside in Virginia if that helps any.March 29 2011 - Petersburg00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
