The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neighborhoods and we know how important it is to have a high credit score when applying for a mortgage. Credit scores range between 200 and 800, with scores above 620 considered desirable for obtaining a mortgage. Your payment history for your credit cards is a deciding factor. If they were late, then how late? Bankruptcy filing, liens, and collection activity also impact your history. If you owe a great deal of money on numerous accounts, it can indicate that you are overextended. However, it’s a good thing if you have a good proportion of balances to total credit limits. In general, the longer you have had accounts opened, the better. The average consumer’s oldest obligation is 14 years old, indicating that he or she has been managing credit for some time, and only one in 20 consumers have credit histories shorter than 2 years.

How much new credit you have is also taken into consideration. New credit, either installment payments or new credit cards, are considered more risky, even if you pay them promptly. Generally, it’s desirable to have more than one type of credit – installment loans, credit cards, and a mortgage, for example.
