Looking to buy a Boston Seaport condo? Credit scores play a big part

In today’s market nearly every lender in the country is requiring a minimum credit score of 620 or higher. Unfortunately this eliminates nearly one-third of potential homebuyers according to Zillow. The other two-thirds of buyers may qualify for a loan, but will need a score above 740 to get the best rates. If your score falls between 620 and 740, there will most likely be an adjustment to your rate, or you could possibly miss out on credit that you would have otherwise received. 

If you are below 620 or just below 740, here are a few things you can do to raise your score while looking for a Boston Seaport condo for sale:

Pay your bills on time-

 Sounds simple, but one recent late payment can drop your score significantly.

Keep your debt ratios low- 

If your credit limit on your credit card vs. your balance is too high, you can lose significant points. I have seen 30 points or more for a single credit card. Never have your credit cards maxed out when trying to buy a Boston Seaport condo

Opening up new credit- 

If you open up a new credit card or buy a car, this can negatively impact your score as well. Generally speaking it is not a good idea to open anything when getting ready to buy a Boston condo for sale or during the process. There are some circumstances where one may have little to no credit where opening up a new credit card can be positive for your score. You would want to consult an expert in this case.

Don’t close your credit card accounts-

Generally speaking it is not a good idea to close a credit card that you are no longer using. If you do so, you could potentially eliminate a positive piece of credit from your score which can significantly drop your score. Every credit report and situation is different, so make sure that you get professional help before making changes to your credit profile.
