Credit scores are crucial to the homebuying process. Not only does your FICO score determine if you can qualify for a loan in the first place, it will also have an impact on your mortgage terms. See whether you’ve got the credit score to buy a house with the type of loan you’d prefer.
What credit score is needed to buy a house?
You don’t need flawless credit to get a mortgage. In some cases, scores can even be in the 500s. But because credit scores estimate the risk that you won’t repay the loan, potential lenders will reward a higher score with more choices and lower interest rates.
For most loan types, the credit score needed to buy a house is at least 620. But higher is better, and borrowers with scores of 740 or more will get the lowest interest rates.
