My wife's is 750+. I will be using my VA loan. However talking with banks they are worried about a single account, I have one account that is 6 years 11 months old from date of first delinquency. (it was a car) I have made multiple attempts to settle or make payments but the bank is only wanting payment in full with an astronomical amount of interest and late payments. Basically is there a lender who can see past that one account and see all the good I have done for the last 7 years? &nbsp;<br \><br \>4 replies Thu, 21 Aug 2014 14:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/700-Credit-Score-for-VA-Loan/555786/ 2014-08-21T14:25:00Z Is the propety for the above address still available for renting http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-the-propety-for-the-above-address-still-available-for-renting/555843/ We are very interested in renting this property and I cannot find a phone for Zillow to call and ask.
