The minimum credit score required to buy a house will vary depending on the type of loan and the lender's standards. Generally, a higher credit score will give you access to more favorable loan terms and interest rates.
For conventional loans, which are not backed by the government, most lenders require a minimum credit score of 620 or higher. For FHA loans, which are backed by the Federal Housing Administration, the minimum credit score is often 580, although some lenders may require a higher score.
For VA loans, which are backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the minimum credit score requirements are typically much more relaxed and can be as low as 620, although the specific requirements can vary based on the lender.
It's important to note that while these are the minimum credit score requirements, having a higher credit score can improve your chances of being approved for a loan and getting better loan terms. It is always a good idea to work on improving your credit score before applying for a mortgage, and to get pre-approved by a lender to understand what loan options are available to you.
