Ellie Mae Didnt She Play On The Beverly Hillbillies

Ellie Mae is actually a loan origination and tracking software extensively used by lenders to track new mortgages nationwide. Here are some of their findings:

·   33% of loans last month went to borrowers with FICA scores (ask your lender)  
    below 700
·   Average FHA* home purchase loans had a FICA score of 684
·   Down payments for FHA loans for homes average around 5%; some were 3.5% ·   Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac also allowed 5%, but you had to show you could
    pay mortgage premiums

·   Veteran Administration loan down payments can be zero down
·   The Dept. of Agriculture (for people who live in small towns) also had zero
    down payments.
