This means underwriters can accept higher debt to income ratios up to 57%, no credit score scenarios, applicants currently in a bankruptcy, scores as low as 580 with 3.5% down and 500 with 10% down, manufactured homes, construction loans, cosigners and gifts from family, friends or non-affiliated third parties. If it makes sense it can be done through FHA.
