Fannie Mae announced that their Automated Underwriting System will now take an AVERAGE of the two scores for qualifying
Do you and your partner have very different credit scores? Great news! You may have access to more loan program options than you thought! Here’s the deal… All lenders pull FICO scores from each of the three credit bureaus to qualify a borrower. In situations with co-applicants, we will use the lower of the two middle scores for qualifying purposes. Historically, to do a Conventional Loan, both mid-scores would have to be above 620.
Effective on 9/18/21, Fannie Mae announced that their Automated Underwriting System will now take an AVERAGE of the two scores for qualifying. This critical change may help many borrowers qualify and have increased advantages when putting an offer in on a home.
