Buyers: You Must Have a Good Credit Rating

Borrowers with a credit score in the range of 620 to 659 are often viewed by lenders as below-prime credit. According to first quarter numbers from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s consumer panel, these consumers only merit 4.6 percent of mortgage dollar volume. There are surveys that say credit is loosening for some types of loans but overall standards are still far tighter than they were pre-crisis.

He further writes that assuming the pace continues, 2016 will be the best year of home sales in a decade.
