My husband and i are looking to buy a home within the next 3 yrs. what is the average credit score we should have? we live in the syracuse,ny area
Loan requirements change all the time. Right now, to get an FHA loan, you need a 640 credit score. 680 is better if you can make that happen.
Good Luck!
