What are current Mortgage Rates in Northern Virginia?

After reaching a high of nearly 5% in 2018 mortgage rates have retreated to a current average rate of 4.41% for a 30 year fixed rate. This means you have a chance to save some pretty big money on your monthly mortgage by buying a home now rather than waiting for rates to continue to climb again. Rates are forecast to be in a general upward trend for the next year.

What Credit Score Do I Need To Buy A House?

A lot of people are confused by this as well; they think they need perfect or near perfect credit scores in order to qualify for a mortgage and buy a home of their own. I have had home buyers believe that they need a 700, 800 or even higher FICO credit score in order to buy a home; this is also misinformation. The truth is that that nearly one third of all approved mortgages are given to people with FICO scores below 700. I personally have helped many home buyers locate mortgages that allowed them to purchase homes with credit scores below 600. While it does pay to have a higher credit score, not having one shouldn't make you believe that you can't buy a home of your own. I wrote an article that you can use — with great tips to get your credit score up to buy a house. There's even one tip that can only be used when you are buying a home.
