Did You Know… 52% of Approved Loans Have A Credit Score Under 750?

The results of countless studies have shown that potential home buyers. Even current homeowners, have an inflated view of what is really required to qualify for a mortgage in today’s market.

A study by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania revealed that many millennials have not yet considered purchasing homes.  Why?…because they don’t believe they can qualify for a mortgage.

A recent article about millennials by Realtor.com explained that:

About 72% of aspiring millennial buyers said they’re waiting because they can’t afford to buy…

The article also explained that 29% of millennials believe their credit scores are too low to buy. The problem here is the fact that they think they will be denied a mortgage is keeping them from even attempting to apply.

Ellie Mae’s Vice President Jonas Moe encouraged buyers to know their options before assuming that they won’t qualify for a mortgage:

“Many potential home buyers are ‘disqualifying’ themselves. You don’t need a 750 FICO® Score and a 20% down payment to buy.”

So, what credit score is necessary?

Below is a breakdown of the FICO ® Score distribution of all closed (approved) loans in July from Ellie Mae’s latest Origination Report.
