Obviously, you have to meet other requirements like with any credit score but we are closing clients with that score all the time. We are a federally charter bank in business since 1905 and we know how to close these type of loans.

She may only be licensed in Tx but her company may be licensed in Louisiana.&nbsp;I am not affiliated with Diana or with Westar.&nbsp; I just believe they will close loans below 620 fico if it makes sense.

Lenders advertise loans for credit scores down to 580 to lure clients into they call centers. make sure you have your file fully underwritten by a manger or "underwriter" (licensed and trained professional that has the authority to approve your loan). I see the bigger banks and specialty lenders/brokers offering these products but consumers rarely are approved for this product out the gates. Sales people are good at sales, the goal is to get you to call. In reality, you need a 640 minimum score. Anything lower (unless you qualify for a VA loan) is considered risky. There are additional requirements that need to be for you to be approved for a loan when your score is that low. Loans are all about risk, the lower the FICO/credit, the more risk. What you may want to do is contact a credit correction company to consult with you as to how to improve your score to 640. That creates a much more likely outcome. I have helped many of my clients with sub 600 scores reach the 640 threshold and receive loan approval with the better rates.
