A lot of people buy their dream house through credit. In fact, most homeowners in the country acquired their property through years of paying their home mortgage monthly. Over those years, they have gone through different situations, including changes in their financial status. How does one keep paying for a home mortgage loan even when he or she loses a job? On the other hand, can one change their monthly home mortgage to a higher amount if they get the ability to?

The answer is yes. Through home refinancing, homeowners can change the monthly amount they pay for home mortgage. However, before one gets to refinance, they are first evaluated by the lending company. They have to make sure that you are in fact capable of keeping up with monthly home mortgage.

When you are evaluated for home refinancing, a very important factor that lenders consider is your credit score. This is proof of your ability and discipline in paying for your credits. It is a number (three-digit), which measures the probability of a person to pay back whatever amount he borrowed. It ranges from 350 to 850. The higher the score is, the lower the risk there is for lenders to give you money. You should aim to get a score as high as you can. On the average, a credit score of 620 to 660 is safe. Below that, and it would be hard for you to get a mortgage or a home refinance.

To get your credit score, you can obtain your credit history from Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. Your credit report would include the credit score based on your credit history, and is measured according to the following factors:

  • 5%: Pursuit for new credit
  • 15%: The time you have been using your credit
  • 15%: Available credit types
  • 30%: current indebtedness level
  • 35%: credit performance in the past.

      For you to be able to score well, you have to make sure that you pay all bills on time. But donít stop purchasing and borrowing through credit. Your credit score is based on credit, so donít scare away from credit purchases and payments. You can also combine your accounts to decrease your utilization rate and keep your credit score high.
