Fannie Mae HomeStyle Loan
I am sure many of you are asking why I am so driven and passionate about this “HomeStyle” loan program. Maybe I am crazy? LOL this is a possibility
For decades many homeowners have not focused on building equity in their home. In my 30+ years in real estate I believe that creating and building equity in your home is major building block in your family’s financial foundation. By building equity you can buy up every few (5 – 7) years and after your 2nd or 3rd home sell you will have the home of our dreams without the high monthly payment!
Fannie Mae “HomeStyle” Loan allows up to 50% in remodel / repairs (based on “as completed value”).
Some of the Benefits of a HomeStyle Loan:
- Ability to explore more home choices for purchase
- Can immediately add equity to the home
- Advantageous for the First Time Home Buyer, no need to save up for the home repairs, needs and wants
- Avoiding high interest rate credit cards for home repairs
- Borrowers can purchase the appliances they may not own
- Have the ability to personalize home improvements
- Get in your desired school district or neighborhood
- Have more house than you thought you could afford
- Get the kitchen, bathroom, or office they wanted or needed
- Remodel a home to fit their needs
- Monthly mortgage insurance will be based on the estimate value of the home after renovation. And NO upfront funding fee that Government Loan require (FHA, VA & USDA)
The HomeStyle Loan is for both Purchases and Refinances!

I get ask this question a lot and wrote a blog on this back in October 2013 and since the lending industry does change often I thought I would update you on Lender Requirements on credit scores.
Lenders have become a little more open when it comes to their credit score requirement, typically now it is 620 for government (FHA, VA & USDA) loans. Conventional loan requirements for credit scores are typically higher than government, this is due to the face that government loans are “guaranteed” or “insured” by the government. So that lessens the lenders risk.
The credit score the lenders go off of is your middle score of the 3 credit scores they get when they pull your credit. If the loan has more than 1 borrower the lender will go off of the lower of the 2 middle scores.
The higher your credit score is the smoother the loan will be underwritten “typically” and the better your interest rate. So someone with a 760 mid score typically gets a better rate than someone with a 620 mid score. The reasoning behind this is risk factor, the lower your score the higher the risk taken by the lender to extend the mortgage loan to you.
The down payment amount / percentage plays into the approval! Let’s say you have a 640 credit score and you will be putting 40% down on your new home. Since the lender is taking less of a risk the chances are pretty good that you will be approved. The larger down payment lessens the lender’s risk and they are more open to doing the loan. This of course is contingent on what derogatory credit is reporting on your credit report.
While some lenders say they will loan to borrowers with scores lower than 600 but I have yet to see one close. I am from Missouri and “You have to Show Me”!!! LOL
Bottom-line you will need a middle credit score of 620 or higher.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask and I will answer.
