Well if you want good interest rates I just recommend that you have your credit scores above 700. Although, scores as low as 580 can be accepted. Another thing to keep in mind, is that depending on your score, an increase may not help your rate that much if you increase, but this depends where you currently stand. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!
