当你在考虑买房的时候, the first step you should take before looking for your dream house is getting pre-approved for a mortgage. Find out if you qualify for a 贷款, and for what type of 贷款 and mortgage rate you qualify for.

你的信用评分会影响你的抵押贷款利率. Most lenders use a credit score designed by Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO). 作为一个消费者, you can monitor and access your credit report and ensure that your credit score is managed as strong as possible.
分数范围从300 - 850. A score below 620 is considered sub-prime and indicates a higher risk to lenders resulting in higher rates and fewer choices of 贷款s, 620到659被认为是近质数, 但仍可能被视为风险较高的候选人. 660-719 is Prime, and 720 or above is Super-Prime, with the best rates available. 然而, buyers looking to purchase their primary residence have options to qualify for an FHA 贷款 with credit scores as low as 500 and low-interest rates.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires each of the nationwide consumer reporting companies to one free credit report from all three major credit reporting bureaus – TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian – for every consumer every 12 months (visit annualcreditreport.com 订购你的免费报告).

When you are like most people you probably ask someone you trust for a recommendation. 但当涉及到你的抵押贷款时, you should always consider that your situation might be different from your friend’s situation. Therefore always consider that you should find a lender or a bank that fits your needs the best. Before getting started make sure that the bank, savings & 贷款, 信用合作社, or mortgage broker is active in the product and local market for the type of 贷款 you need.
