Plaza Home Mortgage® is making it easier to qualify more borrowers with reduced minimum FICO requirements for our FHA, VA and USDA programs! For these core loan programs, the new minimum FICO has been lowered to 600 for FHA and VA and 620 for USDA. We have also updated our popular FHA 203(k) program, which combines financing for the purchase or refinance of a home and its renovation into a single loan, to have a new reduced minimum FICO of 620.

Help your borrower get that perfect condo when it’s not in an FHA-approved complex. Now, with the Single-Unit Approval process, individual condominium units can be approved for FHA financing even when they aren’t in FHA-approved buildings or projects. It opens up more lending opportunities for you, and more selling opportunities for your agents. And Plaza is here to help you get it done!
