Many first-time homebuyers delay getting a mortgage because they’re worried they won’t qualify or don’t have the down payment or the interest will be too high and they won't be able to afford the mortgage payments.


Your credit score impacts most big purchases in your life, including the purchase of a home. If your credit score is too low, you are deemed too risky and can be denied a mortgage. Or, you may be able to get approved for a mortgage with a bad credit score, but it may be with an incredibly high interest rate. That’s why it’s essential to start fixing your credit to buy a house.


What Credit Score Do I Need to Buy a House?


Your credit score can range anywhere from 300 to 850. Here’s a general look at credit score ranges:



  • Poor: 300 – 579

  • Fair: 580 – 669

  • Good: 670 – 739

  • Very good: 740 – 799

  • Excellent: 800 – 850


The average FICO score in the United States is 703.

While the exact score will vary for each lender, most lenders will want to see a credit score of at least 580 to 660 to approve a mortgage. However, it’s important to know there’s a difference between being approved for a mortgage and being approved with a reasonable interest rate. It’s estimated you need to have a credit score of around 740 or higher to get the best interest rates on your mortgage. That’s why many individuals want to fix their credit before buying a house
