That may be an opportunity to pick up buyers.  OF course, the file still has to make sense, and compensating factors will help it.  So...thumbs up!

500!!  that is kindog ridiculous!  good for us realtors, but that person with 500 should not be allowed to buy a pack of gum on credit, let alone a house!
