Wondering whether you qualify to purchase a new home? A government agency reports that the average credit score on FHA-backed loans fell to 680 in 2013, and the average debt-to-income ratio of borrowers rose to 40.3 percent — both indicators that credit requirements may be easing. In comparison, the agency reported in January 2013 that the average credit score was 701 and the debt-to-income ratio was 38 percent.
