Zillow Advice: Home Buying - what`s the credit score for a v.a. home loan? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-s-the-credit-score-for-a-v-a-home-loan/507420/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate As an agent in a very strong ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-s-the-credit-score-for-a-v-a-home-loan/507420/ As an agent in a very strong VA market I can tell you most lenders here in Middle TN want VA buyers to have a 620 middle score. However there are some banks and lenders that will do 600. Best bet is to talk to a lender and see if a rapid rescore is available. Many times you can get 20,30, or 40 points in a short period by doing what your loan officer suggests.<br/><br/> Tue, 20 Aug 2013 15:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-s-the-credit-score-for-a-v-a-home-loan/507420/ 2013-08-20T15:04:00Z Good morning,Most Lenders ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-s-the-credit-score-for-a-v-a-home-loan/507420/ Good morning,<br/><br/>Most Lenders require a minimum of 640 credit score today, although there are Lenders who will work with lower scores.<br/><br/>Thank you for your service to our nation!<br/><br/>Trevor Curran<br/>NMLS #40140<br/>[Website removed by Zillow moderator.

But the average minimum for a VA loan for most lenders would be around 620. This is the average, so if you shop around you will probably find lenders who's minimum are higher and some that are lower.<br/><br/>I hope this helps!
