How Your Credit Score Affects Your Mortgage Rate

To start, you’ll need to know what your current credit score is. You should compare that against the average Mississippi consumer credit score which is 667. 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, among which is your credit score.
