You may consider 3% down conventional with a minimum 700 fico score and 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) from a minimum 620 fico score. The interest rate varies on each program and depending on your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. There is a chance of raising your fico scores a little more and qualify under 4% depending on your loan amount. Your fico scores can be raised in 3-4 days in most cases...

a 700 score used to be a SUPER credit score, now, it is treated as above average by most lenders. The "NEW" super score is 740 with most conventional lenders (Fannie and Freddie). That being said, FHA lenders consider 700 Scores to be excellent (still not super), and you usually will qualify for a bit lower rate with FHA lenders.
But, as some other answers have already said, Credit Scores are just one factor of about 4-6 factors the lender looks over before giving you a loan. Income, existing debt, length of time in your job, the type of home you are buying and its appraised values are among the others.
We have also a first time home buyer program that matches your downpayment 4:1 up to 7500 dollars. It is a great program, and the buyer must have 1000 of their own money. The program is funded through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, and is legal in all 50 states. There are other qualifying conditions, but as I said, it is a great program!

There's a few different factors that will determine the interest rate. Credit score is just one. I have a great senior loan officer at Bank of America I could have her call you if you'd like. Let me know.
I hope this message finds you well; a 700 fico is a great deal! You should be able to get top notch interest rates and great pricing. Now your next step to take is to get pre-approve through a mortgage banker and compare that approval with your desire purchase price. You will be amazed of how affordable home purchasing has become now days.
I have a great deal coming up this Friday in Eastlake; if you are interested please don't hesitate to contact me.
A score of 700 can certainly get you in the door! However, there are several items that need to fall into place.
Income, debt to income ratio., what loan program you qualify, cash for down payment ,closing costs and more. My suggestion is to contact your favorite bank and see what program you qualify for. Sometimes you can have some of these fees covered. As a Realtor, I can also suggest a Lender in the area. Please contact me.
Your credit is good, there's no reason you couldn't buy a house. Lenders look at other criteria too such as income & expenses, available credit, etc. The basic loans are conventional with a 20% down payment, FHA with 3.5%, VA with 0%. Your interest will vary, the numbers you see today will likely be different tomorrow, or even later today, as rates change all the time. Don't shop lenders based on interest rate, they'll all be competitive when it comes down to locking your rate in. Instead, compare their fees. Also, not all lenders are alike, some of the larger ones are more difficult to work with than a smaller lender who have the flexibility to inject some common sense in certain situations. There are also loans on bank owned properties based on who owns them if the property and buyer qualifies. Your best bet is to talk to a few lenders to see what type of loan you'd qualify for. I can help you figure out your likely loan type and help you with lender fees.
Let me know if I can answer any other questions, or if you'd like me to send you some direct lenders to talk to. Often, banks ask buyers to be approved with a direct lender, as opposed to a broker, who could be anyone.
it is great news that you have a 700 credit score. Now, you need to take your income papers (proof of income for las two months, last 2 years tax returns, last 2 months bank statements) to your bank or financing company so they can prequalify you and give you written notice of how much you qualify for. Based on that, THEN you can start looking for the house of your dreams. Buyers getting pre-qualified before starting to look at homes to buy save a lot of time and gasoline, I wish most of buyers would do that. So start getting your paperwork together so you can find out the price of the house that you can buy and start looking for one. NAd by the way, congratulations for your score!
Have a great day!

A credit score is not the only factor that will determine if you can get a house.. its like cooking, different ingredients all coming together to complete a great meal. To get a house, DTI, income, and credit will all determine how much house you can afford. So just because you have an
I'm a buyer like you. Our credit scores hover around 800, but our mortgage guy said our rate would be 4.625% - 0 points - 30 years fixed, and that rate is for anyone with a score over 680 at Countrywide.
Kinda irritates me that someone with scores 120 points below us gets the same consideration but oh well. Now you know - there's no rate penalty for having a 700 score in the mortgage world.
