Thinking About Buying A Home? Improve Your Credit Score With These Tips


Your credit score plays a key role in the homebuying process. Having a high credit score can help you score a lower interest rate on your mortgage—which can save you tens of thousands of dollars over the course of your loan.

A recent article from Apartment Therapy outlined five key strategies to improving your credit score, including:



  • Paying your bills on time, all the time;

  • Keeping credit card balances low;

  • Auditing your credit report on a regular basis (and correcting any mistakes);

  • Limiting hard inquiries; and

  • Giving your score time to grow



The Takeaway:


Bottom line? If you make these five strategies a rule, your credit score will improve—and you’ll be able to save money on your mortgage as a result.
