580 – 640 Loan Programs

At Cornerstone First Financial, we pride ourselves on being able to accomplish closing loans that other institutions cannot. With our broad range of programs and lending partnerships, we are your first choice for alternative types of financing that big banks consistently turn down. While most banks stop considering loan approvals at a below 640 credit score, at Cornerstone First, we have the ability to go to 580 on both VA and FHA Loans.

That is correct! Our 580 – 640 loan programs can result in loan approvals with a 580 credit score, for purchase or refinance! If you have been told that you are disqualified due to low credit score or challenged credit, then contact Cornerstone First Financial today to see what we can do for you.
