First Time Home Buyer Mortgage Info.
Credit scores are a big factor in getting a home mortgage today. We advise clients to be above 640 before aggressively looking for a home. Why 640? 640 is the lowest score most banks offer Before major increases to mortgage interest rates and most banks won’t lend under 640.
You want to wait until you get to 640 before applying.
Banks use your middle score. So your high score and low score are “thrown out” and the middle score is the score used to price your loan and qualify you.
How to Improve Scores? In general you want to have no more than 1-2 credit cards. You should never charge more than 50% of the total allowable spending limit at any time. So if your total limit is $10,000 on a credit card, never spend more than $5,000 on it and make sure you pay it down each month.
