Isn’t this what got us in trouble before?

As Reported in Realtor Magazine…

Wells Fargo Says Credit Score of 500 OK
In a long-awaited shift, Wells Fargo is providing FHA mortgages to borrowers with credit scores as low as 500. The move comes after the National Association of Realtors® and FHA Commissioner David Stevens, among others late last year, criticized the country’s major banks for requiring credit scores as high as 650 in some cases before making loans. At NAR’s annual conference last year in New Orleans, Stevens said banks’ credit policies were out of sync with the FHA and artificially restraining home sales by as much as 20 percent. Under its new policy, Wells Fargo will accept borrowers with credit scores of 500 to 579 if those borrowers can make a down payment of at least 10 percent; gifted funds or other down payment assistance is not allowed. For borrowers with credit scores of 580 to 599, borrowers must put down 5 percent, with the same restriction on gifts and assistance funds. Borrowers with credit scores of 600 or higher can make a 3.5 percent down payment. The new policy took effect Jan. 15.

WSJ reports Home Affordability Returns to Pre-Bubble Levels

Data provided by Moody’s Analytics track the ratio of median home
prices to annual household incomes in 74 markets. By that measure,
housing affordability at the end of September had returned to or
surpassed the average reached between 1989-2003 in 47 of those
markets. Most economists believe the housing boom took off in 2003. Pair low prices with low interest rates and we look like we are
turning toward a recovery…
