Why go FHA when you have better options? If you’ve been told you can only get a loan if your credit score is 620 or higher, 1st United can help. It is our immense pleasure to assist soldiers in getting the loan they deserve. We’re here to make the process of buying a home smooth and easy, while you leave behind the world of landlords and possible monthly rent increases, and enter into one of home owning stability. Start Now.
