How Important Is A Good Credit Score?
Having a good credit score is a huge advantage when you are getting qualified for a home loan. Borrowers with good scores are less financially risky for lenders to qualify, because it shows that they have a history of paying off debt and making payments on time. A high score will help you qualify much easier, and it can help you get a lower interest rate.
If you have a bad credit score it is still possible to qualify for a loan, but you may be more limited in your options. You will also probably pay a bigger down payment and have a higher interest rate. A few ways you can increase your credit score are paying your bills on time, keeping a low balance on your credit card, not applying for new credit card accounts, and keeping your older credit card accounts. You may also want to review your credit report to see where you are going wrong. You can access your credit report annually for free.
