What are FHA and VA Loans?

FHA and VA loans are generally more accessible than conventional loans as they come with less strict requirements and are backed by government agencies. These government-backed loans typically have expanded debt-to-income minimums and lower loan-to-value and FICO requirements.

These programs are specialized to help working families secure their dream homes, and we are proud to be making these programs even more inclusive. Here’s a breakdown of the two:

FHA Loans

 

These loans are for primary residences, meaning you will occupy the home as your primary residence. FHA loans are excellent for first-time homebuyers as the guidelines are less stringent, and borrowers who already have an FHA loan could refinance with today’s lower rates.

VA Loans

 

Backed by the Veterans Affairs department, VA loans are only available to active duty military and veterans. These loans have limits on fees and don’t require mortgage insurance, making them a great choice if you qualify.

Who Is Eligible Now?

Anyone with a FICO score of 530 and above is eligible to apply. If you recently applied for a loan but were denied based on your score, we encourage you to speak with an expert On Q Mortgage Consultant to determine if you might qualify under the new minimums.

If you want to improve your chances of getting approved, we recommend having a debt-to-income ratio below 50% for an automated underwriting approval and a loan-to-value up to 90% for FICO scores between 530 to 579.

The best way to know if you are eligible is to get preapproved. It’s simple, free, and no obligation!
