Thinking about buying a home? Well one of the first steps of getting into the home of your dreams is to make sure you have a good credit score. Low credit hurts your chances of qualifying for a home loan and it can cost you more money due to higher interest rates. Let's take a look at buying a home for $250,000. A lower credit score could mean higher interest rates raising that monthly payment as much as $200 more a month but with a credit score above 700 your interest rate drops and you could be saving an extra $200 a month. That's a potential savings of $2,400 a year or twelve thousand dollars over five years just for having good credit! It pays to have good credit. You get the best interest rates and you save more money.
Don't forget having low credit doesn't necessarily mean you didn't pay your bills on time.
