Summary: Here's a Credit Score Calculator that can give you an estimate of your current credit score range.
Your credit score determines the interest rate you will pay and your credit worthiness to mortgage lenders. The higher your score, the lower your interest rate will be as well as your chances of getting a new home construction loan or home mortgage.
Check your credit report and get your credit scores before you start looking for a new home, home mortgage or home construction loan.
Rising delinquencies and defaults have caused lenders to become cautious.
In the past, a credit score of 720 could get you the best interest rates.
Now, the lowest rates and best loan terms are being made to borrowers with credit scores of 740 or higher.
Credit scores give lenders a fast, objective and consistent estimate of your credit risk.
