How Your Credit Score Affects Your Mortgage Rate
To start with, you’ll need to know what your current credit score is. You should compare that against the average Massachusetts consumer credit score which is 705. And the national average credit score is 677. Your credit score impacts what your home mortgage rate will be. Historically home mortgage rates have varied from 5% to over 13%. Lenders create their home mortgage rates by using the Federal Discount Interest Rate and then increase it by using an internal formula to create their own home mortgage rate. When you apply for a home mortgage, your home mortgage rate will be determined by a whole host of factors, one of which is your credit score.
Massachusetts Mortgage State Laws:
Massachusetts is a title theory state. A title theory requires that the lender holds the title to the property until the loan is paid. The loan document is the trust deed. In Massachusetts, a trust deed and a mortgage are synonymous. Non-judicial foreclosure processes are generally elected. The requirements for sale of a foreclosed property:
- Notice of sale must be announced once a week, for three weeks prior to sale, in the county’s highest circulating newspaper.
- A notice must be sent to the borrower’s home thirty days before the sale of the property, via registered mail.
- The lender has right of redemption.
