Lenders Decrease FICO Requirements For Homebuyers

March 27, 2019 Digital Media Solutions

Lenders are continuing to lower FICO score requirements for homebuyers, according to HousingWire. Between November 2018 and January 2019, median FICO scores decreased by four points to 726 for both bank and nonbank lending institutions. At 745, the average agency FICO score is still high, compared to 713 at nonbank lenders — however both show FICO requirements on a downward trend. This decrease echoes a trend covered in the Q4 2018 Mortgage Consumer Profile Report, published by Best Rate Referrals.

“Fair” And “Good” Credit Scores Increased In Q4 2018 For Purchase Mortgages

An increased share of purchase mortgage inquiries had “fair” and “good” credit scores in Q4 2018 compared to Q3 2018, while the share of volume (SOV) for “excellent” credit scores declined during the same period.
