What Counts as “Low Credit” Anyway?

What Counts as “Low Credit” Anyway?

First, let’s debunk the home-buying myth that you have to have a gold-plated credit score to buy a house. Lenders review your whole financial picture. If you have a steady income, a regular payment history, and some cash in hand, that will help balance your less-than-perfect credit.

 

How Does Your Credit Score Affect Interest Rates?

You may pay more in the form of a larger down payment, a higher interest rate, private mortgage insurance, or points, which are fees attached to the loan.

How much more interest might you pay? Let’s say you’re going for a $216,000, 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage. Here’s how your rate could change based on your score. (FYI, the monthly payment estimate includes only interest and your principal, not insurance, taxes, private mortgage insurance, or other expenses.) Rates here may not reflect current conditions.
