Hello Dirtjerz,

Realistically you need a 580 credit score to get a mortgage in your new home purchase. You will get a much better rate if your score is 620 or higher. However your credit score is only one piece of the puzzle. Your employment history factors into the equation as well as the amount of debt you carry as a percentage of your gross income. Past credit history also is important.
