What is the minimum credit score?
The borrower’s credit score is taken into consideration when underwriting the loan. We also look at the borrower’s credit in terms of the exit strategy. If the borrower intends to buy and hold rather than fix and flip the property, we will pay closer attention to FICO scores. We take the middle score on a tri-merge and use that to price out your loan. Min credit for rental loans 600 (exception needed) Min credit for rehab loans 620
