Your Credit Score and Home Buying.

If you’re in the market to buy a new home, your credit score is an integral part of obtaining the best interest rate on a home loan.

Do you know your credit score? That single number will help determine the rate you will secure when buying a home.

Here are some tips to help manage your credit score.

Do:

– Develop a credit history
– Make timely payments
– Mix up different types of credit
– Maintain a consistent balance

Don’t:

– Close old, unused credit accounts
– Open accounts for better credit mix
– Sign up for retailers’ incentives
– Shop for a loan too long

Better interest rates mean a better loan. If you moved today, would you qualify for a good interest rate based upon your credit score? Know your score. And be smart with how you use your credit.
